Teaching the Teachers: Integrating Astrobiological Concepts Into Secondary Education by Reaching Teachers at the Masters Level
When: May 22, 2012 3PM PDT
I will present a course, “Fundamentals of Astrobiology for Science Educators,” that was offered at UW Bothell in the fall of 2010. The course emphasized how astrobiology can be used as a bridge to link science concepts typically viewed as unrelated by students and was designed to provide practicing educators with a working overview of key astrobiological concepts within the context of state and national science education standards. We used a combination of lectures, discussions, and classroom activities to help the students integrate astrobiology with their existing curriculum.
