Education activities review: February 20-24

February 24, 2012

Education collaborations

KBEEA members met yesterday for their semi-annual meeting at a wonderful new location – the AGEYA Wilderness Education facility above Skyline Drive in Homer. The group discussed upcoming education program changes and collaborations, a pilot mentor student program in May, and professional development needs of local teachers – specifically for cumulative effects from stressors on the Kenai Peninsula (i.e. further development of the Kenai Tomorrow project), ocean science, and climate change science. They also discussed the upcoming (March 9 – 10, 2012) Kachemak Bay Science Conference and associated workshops (linked website has registration and detailed information) and National Marine Educators Association conference in Anchorage June 24-28, 2012 (linked webpage has registration and information).

K – 12th Education

KBRR staff have been busy this week planning EE programming for the upcoming spring (April/May) season, as well as the next school year. We currently have 22 Discovery Labs and 9 Estuary Ecology Hikes scheduled for about 700 students from Homer, Kachemak Selo, Nikiski, Kenai, and North Pole.
