28 teachers on Guam and Saipan joined the NPS, the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, and the University of Guam to learn about coral reefs and climate change, and bring the message back to their classrooms.

 

Just as Guam’s teachers were settling into summer break, the NPS Inventory & Monitoring Program joined with War in the Pacific National Historical Park and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES) to hold a full week “teach the teachers” workshop with a few dozen local science teachers. The workshop encouraged Guam teachers to use NPS and UMCES developed coral reefs and climate change science material in their classrooms. How did they like it?
 
“I cannot wait to put [the program] to use in my classroom and share with my other colleagues.”
             —9th grade teacher

“I never realized the importance of our coral reef.  It is an important part of our lives.”                                                            —Elementary teacher

See for yourself the dynamic Coral Reef and Climate Change education program they are talking about.
