DURHAM, N.H. -- The University of New Hampshire's Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space will host two one-day workshops for teachers on using student-based inquiry as a means for learning the scientific process July 16 and 17, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Morse Hall on the UNH campus.

The non-credit courses are offered by the Complex Systems Research Center and the New Hampshire Space Grant Consortium, and funded with a grant from the state Department of Education. There is no charge for participation and a certificate of attendance will be provided. Morning refreshments and lunch will also be provided.

The workshops complement the Forest Watch program, but familiarity with it is not required. The workshops are ideal for grades 5-12, but elementary teachers are invited to participate.

Space is limited to 20 per workshop. Participants are encouraged to attend both, but either workshop can be taken alone. To register, contact Shannon Spencer, research scientist in UNH's Complex Systems Research Center, at 603-862-4187 or shannon.spencer@unh.edu
