Fostering Outdoor Inquiry Skills
- February 25, 2017
7:00 am - 1:00 pm
Inquiry is the cornerstone of science and science education. However, inquiry centered around wildlife and habitats can be a challenge. In this workshop, explore outdoor inquiry skills in order to show students that science does not just happen in a lab or classroom. Activities will help youth see and engage with nature. They will learn how to ask scientific questions and perform investigations to help answer those questions. Activities and resources have been developed by both the Arizona Game and Fish Department and the Association for Fish and Wildlife Agencies.
The workshop will take place on Saturday, February 25, 2016 at the Hirsch Conservation Education Area located at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in North Phoenix. The workshop will begin at 9am and will last until 3pm.
Participation is free.
Space is limited and registration is required. Registration does not guarantee participation. Spots will be filled on a “first to register” basis after payment has been received. If all spots are filled, additional registrations will be added to a waiting list. All accepted participants will receive additional details as we get closer to the program.
Participants will receive a certificate for 5.5 hours of continuing education as well as access to a variety of resources.
Participants will be responsible for their own lunch.
A great supplement to this workshop is the “Fostering Outdoor Observation Skills” in January.
