    Zion National Park in Springdale, UT is looking for a Teacher Ranger Teacher for the summer. They are specifically looking for middle and/or high school teachers. 

    Here is the link to explain more about the TRT program, The National Parks Service | Teacher Ranger Teacher Program

    The Zion National Park cohort is July 10 - August 20, 2022. 


    There are THREE requirements for all participants in the TRT program:  


    1. A minimum of 160 hours of service to your National Park site.  
    2. Successful completion of the graduate course: TRT Field Experience: Place-Based Education on Public Lands 
      1. This is a three-credit hour class, which requires 45 contact hours. Graduate course guidelines indicate that for each contact hour, 2-3 hours of readings and activities are typical. Most of these additional hours are achieved through the TRTs National Park, but TRTs should plan on 3-4 hours per week for course readings, assignments, and discussions.  
    3. Register for the 3.0 graduate credits (Pass/Fail) through CU Denver:  Cohort 2: August 26th deadline  

    *Failure to meet any of the deadlines above will result in forfeiture of your $3000 summer stipend.

    RPDP is implementing a new newsletter during the 2022-2023 school year that is aimed at getting science into our community in Nevada.  The newsletter will be quarterly and will feature activities that can be completed at home as well as highlight science and STEM events around the state.  We will also host two free virtual community family science nights.  The first one will be held in the fall and will focus on recycling.  The second will be in the spring and will focus on space science.  Please feel free to share this with community stakeholders so that they can sign up and participate.

    BSCS Science Learning seeks teacher collaborators for a research project funded by the National Science Foundation. The Climate Education Pathways project is a collaboration between BSCS Science Learning, Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Our project aims to enhance teaching and learning of climate change for high school science and we are recruiting high school biology, earth science, and environmental science teachers to take part in our project. Teacher-collaborators will field test a 6-8 week digital high school science unit about climate and biology developed for the NGSS. Teachers will be supported in localizing the unit for their students and community. Teachers who are a part of the field test have the opportunity to be paid up to $2,700 over the course of 1.5 years (January 2023-May 2024). For more information and to apply to secure your spot in the project, please visit https://bscs.org/upcoming_programs/climate-education-pathways/
