artifact description
Learn how to engage professional geologists, astronomers, soil scientists, and community experts to enrich your Earth Science class. In this presentation, teachers will learn strategies to make contacts with area scientists and practitioners, and see how easy it is to bring them in, either in person or virtually, to engage students in learning. Special emphasis will be on the Farm Chat program which connects farmers with students to discuss soil erosion, nitrate reduction, and more.
