Summer Science Spectacular

Summer Science Spectacular, June 15-16, 2015 on the OARDC campus

scientistOhio State University’s Ohio Agriculture Research and Development Center (OARDC) Summer Science Spectacular provides a professional development learning experience for elementary and secondary school teachers, allowing them to experience world-class cutting edge research conducted by scientists on the OSU Wooster campus. From preschool to middle school, educators are able to utilize this experience to explore new ways to bring relevant, hands-on, standards-driven science to their own classrooms. Each workshop course re-energizes teachers and provides educators with opportunities to share ideas with peers while they enhance their knowledge of science.

This program and its resources are designed to align with the Next Generation Science Standard core progressions. In addition, educators can choose to earn either contact hours or college credit through this program.

Courses for Education

The 2015 program will include two days on on-going instruction. Participants will have the option to purchase 1 graduate credit (see attached syllabus) or earn CEU’s. All participants that complete Day 2 will earn certification from Project Learning Tree. Wayne County Farm Bureau and other agricultural partners will provide hands-on science standards that you will be able to take back to the classroom coupled with an OARDC campus research laboratory tour.
