Science at Sea 2011 – How do Teachers Get Excited About Teaching?

Our staff along with almost 100 teachers just returned from an amazing hands-on learning experience on a cruise to Alaska.

Great teachers will go to extreme measures to get kids excited about learning, but how do you get teachers excited about teaching? You put them on a cruise ship in the middle of southeast Alaska for Science at Sea.

The cruise immerses the teachers in the environment, culture and the science of Alaska.

It’s a seven-day program where teachers across the country meet with the best naturalists in Alaska to learn about ecosystems, wildlife and how we effect the world we live in. The teacher take that experience back to the classroom.

The best teachers take time during their summer break to learn and prepare for the next school year. What has your teacher been up to this summer?
