We will offer two certifications for attending the Science Teacher Workshop.
Certificate of Attendance – this certification is for those who do not need a CEU for attending the workshop. If you do not need a CEU, you do not need to do the pre-work exercise and can just show up on Wednesday, July 26th, 2017.
Certificate for CEU credit – this certification will be used to send to your county office for CEU credit. In order to get credit for 1 CEU, you need to participate in 10 hours of instruction. Your pre-work exercise is required for you to fulfill the other 3 hours of the workshop to earn 1 CEU.
We are asking that you write up an experiment that you have done or are planning to do in your classroom with your students. Your write up can be in either Word or PowerPoint and should be written in your own words (see examples below).
If your school provides kits for science experiments, you can take one of the kit experiments and write it up in your own words. The more detailed the information in your write-up the better. The goal is to create a procedure that others can follow to conduct your experiment.
If you have pictures of the experiment, add them to the write-up. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words in helping to explain something. If you have adapted an experiment from the internet, please cite the source (i.e. website, etc.). Include the following information:
- Your name
- E-mail address
- NCSCOS Objectives
All pre-work experiments will be compiled and given to you on a flash drive at the end of the workshop. You will walk away with experiments from fellow teachers in addition to the ones performed at the workshop.
Pre-work experiments should be emailed to Debbie Koufas (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than Sunday, July 23rd, 2017.
