Join us on Saturday, December 2, for the New York State Museum’s Annual Earth Science Teacher Workshop. This year’s workshop will be a one-day hybrid program held at the Museum and online with top research experts in geology, earth science and paleontology in New York and beyond.
2023 workshop leaders will include:
Dr. Andrew Clift, Curator of Bedrock Cores, NY State Museum

Topics examined will include geology in our daily lives, earth and life in New York 400 million years ago, an overview of the glacial process, ice-age mammal ecology, and more.
The workshop provides educational experience for New York State Earth Science/Physical Setting teachers in an informal setting with research experts, with whom participants will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of New York-specific topics; refine their observational and interpretive skills; and formulate and test scientific practices and applications. Participants will earn a total of 8 hours of CTLE credit from the State Education Department.*
