2019 EarthScope ANGLE Share-a-thon - February 2, 2019

Anchorage School District Education Center
Blue Room
5530 E Northern Lights Blvd, Anchorage AK 99504

February 2, 2019
9 am - 2 pm (lunch included)

Share-a-thon materials are on a private page for participants. Contact ANGLE if you need a reminder of the link.

The Share-a-thon is for the K-12 teachers, park and museum interpreters, and emergency management educators to showcase their accomplishments and/or plans for budding projects that stemmed from participation in the 2018 ANGLE workshop in Anchorage. This gathering is an opportunity to re-connect with the cohort, share ideas and reenergize for ongoing efforts to make our communities more resilient to geohazards. Participation in the Share-a-thon satisfies a requirement of the UAA 2-credit course ED 580.414 EarthScope Alaska Native Geoscience Learning Experience Educator Workshop.

The format for the day is designed to maximize time for people to connect and discuss projects. Sessions begin with a very short announcement-style "here's what we/I did" followed by time to mingle among the displays and have discussions individually and as a group. Half the teams will be "on deck" during the morning and half in the afternoon. Teams are welcome to share their accomplishments via posters, movies, animations, and examples of student work, skits, or any other format that will convey the excitement and utility of the things you have developed, or plan to develop.

Lodging on Friday, Feb 1, will be provided to participants who travel more than 2-hour's drive. Please contact Jennifer Witter ( ASAP to make arrangements.
