SDSC TeacherTECH program helps educators bring new technology tools and technology-enabled science concepts into K-12 curriculum. A mainstay of the SDSC TeacherTECH program is consistency and continuing support for teachers who participate. Its technology, science, and math tools workshops are led by SDSC staff and classroom educators and held in collaboration with SDSC and UCSD researchers. The program offers both academic year and summer training sessions, supported by an information-rich website and follow-up sessions to reinforce new skills and knowledge. This program was once the top resource for San Diego teachers seeking technology skills. TeacherTECH now turns its attention to cutting edge science and science tools for the classroom that can take your curriculum to the next level, thereby empowering your students with new insights into the scientific research being conducted in labs around the world and the science all around us.

Expanding Your Horizons Conference for 6th- 10th Grade Girls
At an EYH conference, you will attend talks, participate in hands-on workshops, and meet with women scientists and engineers. You will also spend time with other girls who are thinking about their futures. There is no substitute for personal contact and genuine hands-on activities. No video, no classroom demonstration, no computer, however “interactive,” can replace the experience of an EYH conference.
For more information or to volunteer, please see http://www.sdsa.org/eyh.

Outdoor Explorer Series for Educators
San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum (SDCDM) is excited to launch the second year of the Outdoor Explorer Series. The Series is designed to open doors for children to have a broader understanding of our natural world and a deeper connection with nature. It is a multi-faceted program encouraging children to reduce screen time, connect with the outdoors, and get their hands dirty while learning about plants, animals, and the earth. These programs are designed for children ages 3 and up. Hands-on workshop seating is first come, first served. As workshops tend to fill up quickly, please arrive early to secure your spot.For more information and a calendar of monthly themes, please visit http://sdcdm.org/programs/explorer.
