Get Outdoors Ohiopyle- Teacher Workshop

Get Outdoors Ohiopyle is an educational, interdisciplinary, winter based programs for grades 4-12.  It encourages the study of the winter environment, both inside and outside of the classroom.  Participants will gain information on how NASA studies our planet's climate and the cryosphere. Teachers will be  given the tools and training to facilitate a comprehensive study of a winter in their classroom.  This includes investigating snow flakes, thin sectioning ice, viewing ice crystals under polarizing sheets, determining snow density and temperature in the snow pack, the albedo effect and investigating winter through the use of thermochrons.  Participants will also participate in a winter ecology snowshoe hike and spend time using snowshoes during a history activity.   The majority of the lessons will be hands on both in the classroom and outside.

  Participants in this program will spend a great deal of time outside.  Students should be prepared for the out of doors.  Information regarding weather preparedness will be sent to participants prior to the workshop.

This is a two day class.  The second day is February 26 from 8am-4pm.

Participants in this course will receive one Intermediate Unit credit for participation.
