For this botanically inspired workshop, Amon Carter educators have teamed up with contemporary photographer and Distinguished Research Professor at the University of North Texas, Dornith Doherty and educators from the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) to demonstrate how science and art are integrated! Teachers will have the unique opportunity to listen to Doherty speak about her Archiving Eden project at the Amon Carter, and then journey to BRIT to tour the herbarium and engage in sensational seed investigations.
Participants will receive three CPE hours in Fine Arts: Art—All Levels, Science: Physical Sciences—All Levels, and Instructional Techniques—All Levels.
Art, gifted and talented, and science teachers from classroom and homeschool settings, as well as preservice teachers, are encouraged to attend, although others may benefit and are welcome to register.
Space is limited; preregistration is required. Cancellations must be received forty-eight hours in advance of the program or a $25 fee will be charged; program materials will be mailed to absent teachers.
