Chemical Education Foundation looks for input with "You be the Chemist Challenge"
Be the Brains Behind the Challenge!
CEF is looking for educators and science professionals to volunteer on our Content Development Team (CDT), which reviews questions and study materials for the You Be The Chemist Challenge®. Volunteer reviewers collaborate with CEF staff via email, which allows volunteers to work on their own schedules. Last year, the Challenge reached over 55,000 students across 42 U.S. states and territories. By collaborating with CEF as part of the Content Development Team, you can have a significant, far-reaching impact on students at a crucial time for developing an interest in the sciences and STEM careers.

Exploring the Deep Ocean with NOAA
for Educators of Grades 6-12
In Partnership with and Hosted by
John G. Shedd Aquarium
Educators are invited to join NOAA OER facilitators to learn Why We Explore (Volume 1) and How We Explore (Volume 2) the deep ocean. Participants will learn about the importance of ocean exploration and the advanced technological capabilities of the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer used to explore the deep ocean. This 7-hour professional development will introduce standards-based, hands-on activities and online resources that guide classroom teaching and learning. Ocean health, sophisticated underwater mapping technologies, unique deep-sea ecosystems, remotely operated vehicles and telepresence are just a few of the topics covered.
Registration is required and space is limited. Educators will receive the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer Education Materials Collection Volume 1: Why Do We Explore? and Volume 2: How Do We Explore?, additional resources and a NOAA Ocean Exploration Certificate of Participation. Continental breakfast, lunch and a $75 stipend will be provided.
