Teaching Geology in NYC: From the Classroom to the Field

Open to: 8th –12th Grade Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: During this in-person workshop, participants will  do the following:  

  • Explore Central Park geology to learn field techniques for making observations of local rock formations;
  • Analyze and interpret these observations to make inferences about the geologic origins of Central Park rocks.

**The field portion of this workshop requires some strenuous activity, so wear comfortable clothes and shoes for walking two to four miles through the park.
