Authentic Plant Pollinator Landscape Research for Educators (APPL-RED) Workshop

University Park, PA
July 24, 2017 (all day) - July 28, 2017 (all day)

A unique teacher professional development experience for middle and high school teachers.

July 24-28, 2017

Teachers will have the opportunity to participate and collaborate with leading researchers in the area of pollinator and plant-pollinator landscape research, CSATS science educators, and educators from across Pennsylvania. You will spend a week at Penn State learning about ongoing cutting-edge plant-pollinator research at the Penn State Center for Pollinator Research (CPR) and various research  techniques used in this interdisciplinary field.  With support from the APPL-RED team, you will develop a research project to implement with your students in the 2017-2018 academic year. The classroom research project will incorporate learnings from the workshop, data collected by Dr. Christina Grozinger and others at the CPR as well as plant-pollinator interaction data collected by Master Gardeners of Pennsylvania. Preference will be given for collaborative teams of teachers from the same school or district.
