2015 Come to Teacher Training at CDC!At the Fall KABT Conference, I spoke about my AMAZING experience at the CDC last July.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) invites middle- and high-school teachers to attend the 2015 CDC Science Ambassador Workshop. The free* 5-day professional development workshop focuses on training teachers to use examples from public health to illustrate basic math and science principals and concepts in the classroom. The Workskhop will be held from July 20-24 at CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.
Throughout the week, CDC scientists present information on current public health topics and collaborate with participants to develop challenging and innovative public health-based lesson plans that align with Next Generation Science Standards. As part of the 2015 Science Ambassador Workshop, participants will have the opportunity to:
- Attend seminars on current public health topics presented by CDC scientists
