Math and Science Pathways Partnership (MSP Project)
The Math Science Partnership (MSP) is currently completing the coding and data analysis phase of the project. The four strands of Carbon, Water, Biodiversity, and Citizenship are all still available for teacher use in the class room this school year! Both TIRs are available to help you implement the teaching experiments with students. Please contact either one of the TIRs if you plan to use any part of, or all of one of the MSP teaching experiments in your classroom during the 2013-2014 school year.

Integrating Citizenship Workshop
Stipend of $50 provided
Date: November 16, 2013
Time: 8:00am – 12:00 pm (snacks provided)
Location: CSU – Natural & Environmental Science Bldg. Room A302
Using the MSP Citizenship Teaching Experiment, teachers will become familiar with the place-based activities available (Forest Carbon, Bottled Water, Polar Bears, Atrazine). We will create an alternative activity for students as citizens that will allow them to make scientific arguments and evidence based decisions.
To register for this workshop, contact Amanda at email@example.com by November 13, 2013.

June 15 - 28, 2014
Join CSU soil scientists in the exploration of Colorado soils this coming June! Immerse yourself in 10 days of field trips, labs, discussion sessions, and lectures to learn how to study soils. You will be engaged in scientific practices and have access to resources to help you improve your science teaching. Leading soil researchers will cover the following topics in depth:
Environmental Soil Chemistry, Soil Organic Matter, Stable Isotope Applications
Pedology, Geochemistry, Soil Ecology, Food Web Modeling, Soil Microbiology,
Microbial Ecology, Trace Gas Biogeochemistry, Soil Sustainability, Soil Fauna
Interested in applying? Applications are accepted through March 2014. Please ask about scholarship funds.
