Teacher Workshop

The Teacher Workshop is an annual workshop presented as part of NASBR to provide local teachers with resources to bring the amazing world of bats into their classrooms. Teachers will learn from NASBR scientists about bats of Michigan, as well as online resources available to use in their classrooms. Speakers at this year’s Teacher Workshop will also include local scientists from the Leslie Nature Center and the Detroit Zoo to present local hands-on resources available to teachers. The workshop will include a visit from some live bats, and teachers will leave with many materials for their classrooms.

The cost of the workshop is 30 USD which includes lunch and the entry fee to the Macomb Center for State Continuing Education.

 If you are interested in collaborating with the workshop please contact Veronica Brown for any inquires.
