Rocks, Water & Life on Other Planets with Lindy Elkins-Tanton, A Two-Session Master Class (CTLE credits given)

Open to: All Full-time pre K-12 Classroom Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: New research shows that most stars in our sky have planets orbiting them. Rocky planets everywhere have a good chance of forming with water oceans, and of being habitable, at least for a while.  In the first session, with NASA scientist Elkins-Tanton, we will track water through the process of building planets, and touch on several mysteries along the way.  During the second session, participants will exchange ideas with other brilliant teachers.

In addition. participants are assigned a small amount of homework to prepare for each session.  CTLE-credit is available. This program is free for public and charter school teachers.  Participants are selected by application and nomination.
