For the 10th edition of our teacher education initiative called Discovering Earth Sciences, we will be changing things up and offering a full day field trip to local outcrops, quarries and pits. We hope that you will join us for a day of investigating the geological heritage of the Ottawa area, the resources we rely on for our local infrastructure, as well as ideas and inspiration for teaching Earth Sciences. This will provide educators with instruction about Earth processes and materials, introduce and discuss current Earth issues, provide hands-on methods and ideas for using the outdoor environment in your teaching.

Participants will receive a great collection of Earth Sciences Investigation tools and Teaching Resources to take back to classrooms and enhance lessons for students.

For further questions or to let us know you are interested, please email Beth Halfkenny at Beth [dot] McLartyHalfkenny [at] carleton [dot] ca.
