Oyster Research Station (ORS) Training

Open to: STEM Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Billion Oyster Project’s flagship ORS Program is designed for teachers in schools or organizations, and interested members of the public (aka “community scientists”) who want to be engaged in hands-on learning and a citywide effort to restore the New York Harbor Estuary.

This two-part training (one remote session and one in-person session) will teach participants how to do the following:

  • Track oyster growth;
  • Identify organisms living among the oysters; and
  • Help you feel comfortable at the waterfront with children.

Participants will receive scientific investigation tools, inquiry based curricula, and our brand new New York Harbor Species ID Guide.

Key dates:  One remote and one-in person training workshop. Dates/times vary based on chosen events (from 2 offerings) at the end of August
Location: Zoom Event and in-person location to be shared at least a week before the workshop
Registration deadline: 08/25/2021
