Each summer, CReSIS offers professional development workshops across partner institutions for K-12 science teachers. These workshops focus on global climate change, its impacts on the cryosphere, and the remote sensing techniques used at CReSIS. Participants in these workshops have the opportunity to meet and work with world-class scientists addressing climate change and sea level rise issues, and develop resources to use in the classroom.
The CReSIS Research Experience for Teachers (RET) program was a new undertaking in 2011 that brought pre-service teachers to the Center for two summer months. The goal for this program is to introduce its participants to some of the research activities at CReSIS and help them prepare materials for classroom teaching.
