The Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative’s Place Based Education Conference is next week. With 80+ presentations; attendees registered from 15 states and four countries, including the leader of place-based education in Japan; and a full pre-conference day of immersion experiences in Flint area. It’s going to be a good event. Place-based education is becoming a more sought-after instructional strategy that maps well onto adopted standards.
The purpose of MI Sci PLN meetings is to enhance communication, encourage cooperation, and inspire collaboration among the members of professional organizations committed to improving science education.
Join us for the upcoming MI Sci PLN meeting Friday, October 18 from 8:30am-3:30pm. This meeting will be held at Gratiot-Isabella RESD, Winding Brook Conference Center, 8240 S. Genuine Rd., Shepherd, MI 48883. As always it is open to all members of the science education community. Virtual connections will be available (although it’s always better to see you face-to-face). If you are planning to attend, please register (linked) so we have accurate accounting for lunch.
We have a great agenda planned for you based on the questions YOU wanted to explore. In addition, we will have updates from all of the contributing partner organizations and time for networking with colleagues.
Meet the new MI Sci PLN Leadership Team! The MI Sci Leadership Team is an awesome group of science consultants, assembled from across the state, and representing a wide range of organizations and experiences. They are working hard to make sure your meetings educate and inform your needs.
