Exploring HHMI BioInteractive Resources About Human Impact and Climate Change on Coral Reefs
To accommodate educators' schedules, this workshop will be offered twice. Workshop content will be the same at both sessions.
- Session 1: Wednesday, July 20, 4:00–5:30 PM EASTERN
- Session 2: Wednesday, August 3, 4:00–5:30 PM EASTERN
Note that the workshop time is in US Eastern time zone. Please verify the corresponding time in your local area.
Scientists collect and analyze data using a variety of tools. These tools help identify trends and patterns in data. Scientists can use the evidence collected to create models and develop solutions. Participants will utilize free HHMI BioInteractive resources to understand how coral bleaching caused by human activities results from climate change. Using a computer-based activity, participants will analyze authentic satellite temperature data for coral reef sites around the world. We will demonstrate how analyzing coral reef data supports the science practices and helps students understand increasing global temperatures.
This workshop is intended for educators who teach all levels of high school biology and environmental science, including introductory and advanced (AP, IB, etc.) courses.
- The workshop will be hosted via Zoom meeting.
- There will be approximately 30 minutes of asynchronous work before the session.
- Our workshops actively engage participants and often feature small group work in breakout rooms to build community, foster discussion, and model classroom practice.
- Workshop attendees will receive a certificate of participation and access to the free BioInteractive resources modeled in the workshop.
Live transcript will be available in the main Zoom meeting room. If you require live transcription in the breakout rooms, or any other accommodations in order to fully participate in the workshop, please indicate this on the registration form.
