Barrier Island History Workshop for Teachers – Week of June 23

Saturday, May 03, 2014

A weeklong workshop offered by UNCW’s Center for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (CESTEM) is designed to give middle grades and high school STEM and social studies teachers an understanding of NC barrier islands and longleaf pine ecosystems. The workshop will focus on the relationship between history and ecology in order to promote an interdisciplinary approach to teaching. Daily fieldtrips are planned to Zeke’s, Bald Head, and Masonboro islands, Wrightsville Beach and Holly Shelter Game Land.

The course is physically demanding and participants must be able to spend a few hours each day walking or kayaking. This workshop will be held June 23-June 27 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Registration for up to 20 participants is open through June 11. There is a $40 non-refundable fee.
