Welcome!

Professional Development Session
Mapping Local Community Data
with Peter Stetson, from Coventry High School
& RI Envirothon President

Wednesday, April 8, 2015
3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Winman Junior High School

Do your students learn best from hands on activities?
Are you looking for sources of "real" data for students to analyze?
Do you want to find new activities that use the NGSS Practices?

Being able to collect local environmental data and display it so that it can be viewed and analyzed is a useful skill for any scientist. During this workshop you will learn how to collect some local data, enter it into a spreadsheet, import that spreadsheet into an online mapping website, and then share that map with others. Teachers will create an online public account which they can use with their classes, as well as learn how to apply for a free organizational account that allows teachers and students to conduct sophisticated analysis of the data collected.

Congratulations to the 2014
Rhode Island Envirothon Winners:

HIGH SCHOOL Narragansett High School
MIDDLE SCHOOL Compass School


 

 

Throughout the year, students study four broad subjects ("Sections"): Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Soils/Land Use, and Wildlife, focusing on the Key Points, Learning Objectives, and other resource materials referenced here or provided. Students are also encouraged to attend any specialized hands-on workshops that RI Envirothon may provide, and are encouraged to seek additional training from our partner organizations, professionals in the area of study, or other skilled or knowledgeable individuals.

Using the knowledge they have acquired during the year, students, in teams of five, compete against other teams and schools in the one-day, outdoor RI Envirothon Competition, held in the spring. The winning team becomes eligible to represent Rhode Island in the North American Envirothon competition held during the summer and, as available, may be offered internships or summer employment with partner agencies.
