Biodiversity in a Time of Drought: Impacts of a Changing Water Cycle at Jack L. Boyd

July 6, 2017 to July 9, 2017
Explore the Sierra Nevada with scientists and K-12 educators during this 4-day investigation into the water cycle and the impacts of drought on biodiversity. We will start with the three dimensions of NGSS and then take a deeper dive into two cross-cutting concepts: cause and effect and systems and system models. Educators will learn how to analyze the impacts of drought on biodiversity and how to engage in the scientific practices of field investigation and data analysis. They will leave with…See More

Morning Mr. Valadez!

I was considering enrollment, but need to know if attending the second session only would still be valuable and/or would stall the progress of the group.  The first session was not an option for me....  Thank you!  Jeanne

It is always an adventure. Thank you for letting me be apart of each one. Science is in such a need for literacy to be the cornerstone for educators and students alike.
This is irregardless of age, grade or gender. Once a person is literate in the language of discovery and the adventures, what doors could be opened. Imagine the levels of achievement that are possible when learning is fun. The rigor becomes the adventure as new worlds are discovered. Learning becomes a life long pursuit.

I am attending the workshop by NASA / Noyce (The Solar Neighborhood: Earth and Energy) at CSUF for the next two weeks. When would be a good time to come by, and what room?

Thanks much for the invite to CVSP website 8-)

You know what end of school year is like... we finished up the main goal of preparing our students for CST Science testing of course... now im winding down the school year... doing a carb/fat/protein unit using Educationally Enhanced Super Size Me lessons... next ill move onto chemicals that affect the body like alcohol, tobacco, etc.

Looking forward to catching up with you!

Respectfully,
Scott

Dr. Valadez,
Good to hear from you I'm doing well, not sure about my school tho. How about you? I think I will unable to attend the institute as I will be starting summer school myself. I was accepted into the aspiring admin program and will start on June 25. What are the dates for the institute?
At 2:56pm on February 13, 2010, Jerry D. Valadez said…
No. You should confirm by responding to the invitation. I'll send it to you again.
