With support from the Dreyfus Foundation, we are happy to announce the launch of Year 1 of a two-year program designed to provide enrichment in geochemistry for high school chemistry teachers. The program will consist of academic year workshops (~ 5 per year, planned for Fridays) and include classroom support from a UNH-based graduate student in geochemistry. In addition to support of a graduate student in the classroom for GEOChem related projects during the academic year, teachers will be provided with a stipend for participation in the program.
Tentative workshop topics and dates:
1. Inquiry – 5 October 2012
2. EarthÕs Carbon Cycle – 16 November 2012
3. Applied Geochemistry – examples from Agriculture – 14 December 2012
4. Geochemical Cycles, Earth Materials, and Weathering - 22 March 2013
5. Environmental Geochemistry – 3 May 2013
We strongly encourage GEOChem teachers to participate in UNHÕs TESSE summer workshop program for a grounding in Earth System Science. GEOChem teachers who participate in TESSE will be excused from one of the workshops.
TESSE Summer 2012 program runs 16 to 27 July. Application
Application to the GEOChem program can be found here.
