Area Teachers Participate in Refresher Science Courses

Science teachers from around the area are coming together this week to participate in research projects and refresher courses hosted by Black Hills State University, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. Twenty educators from surrounding schools will be assisting geology professor Abby Domagall with multiple research projects that relate to how streams and drainage areas contributed to the formation of the Black Hills as well as studying any historical change of climate in the area.

Janet Briggs, science education specialist at BHSU, explains that teachers gain extra certification credentials by attending the seminar as well as the chance to share ideas with other science educators, which can be difficult in more rural areas. The five-day seminar continues through the week and includes studying geologic features such as the Spearfish Canyon and formations around the Deadwood area.
