2019 Teacher Workshops in Conservation Science Application
The Teacher Workshops in Conservation Science program focuses on conservation science, and how to inspire a passion for nature in every person you engage with, whether in a formal classroom or informal setting. Our program is meant for educators who engage 6th-12th grade students, but is also appropriate for informal educators who work with these grade levels, administrators, and undergraduate professors. Even if you don't teach science in a formal setting, this program has something for you, and we hope you will apply!

We ask that you apply with a partner from your school or organization so that you have built-in support when you want to try new things. At least one person on your team of 2-4 should teach a life science, the other can teach any subject at all, we welcome cross-curricular teams! Each team member must fill out their own application.

Grant-funded scholarships for this residential program include all meals and lodging for the duration of the workshop, in addition to program fees, special experiences, and materials. We will spend Monday and Tuesday night of each program in our Roar & Snore Safari tents at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in Escondido, CA. Each tent is outfitted with a cot, a camp chair, several 4 inch sleeping pads, and an electric lantern. Our campground is outfitted with full restrooms and showers, and limited electrical outlets are available if necessary.

Acceptance decisions will be sent via email in mid April.

The tentative weeks for this summer are:

July 8-11 High School Focus
July 15-18 Middle School Focus
