CSI: Classroom Student Investigations

Do you like using science to solve mysteries? So do we! CSI: Classroom Student Investigations is an excellent PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT opportunity for science teachers.  Forensic cases will be developed in which teachers and students will engage in inquiry-based activities to solve the cases. A wide variety of science fields (life, chemical, physical, and technology) will be included in this program. All cases will incorporate “real-world” activities and teachers will be given information how to adapt to their own classrooms. The workshop will be held June 10 - 21, 2013 (preference will be given to grades 7-10, but others will be considered as space allows), and a limited amount of travel support may be available. Teachers will receive room/board and up to $2000 stipend for successful completion of summer and academic year activities. Workshop is held on the campus of Arkansas State University, Jonesboro, AR. You’ll have the weekend free to explore the area- go shopping, go to movies or out to eat, travel to Memphis (about an hour away) or explore the many outdoor activities in the “Natural State”
