  WOW Workshop News

The first WOW teacher training workshop was held in Wilmington, North Carolina on Oct 9th and 10th. Twelve teachers from the southeastern United States attended, representing 10 community colleges and one high school. Curriculum materials focused on real-time data from remote sensors in stream and lake systems from across the country, with a special focus on the Cape Fear River system.

Participants reviewed sample curriculum materials, tried out some inquiry-based computer labs, and generated their own Powerpoint presentations based on example data. WOW Curriculum Development Team members Rich Huber of University of NC, Wilmington and George Kipphut of Murray State University (KY) conducted a “wet lab” using local water samples and standard water sampling kits, and Rich Huber demonstrated some of the Cape Fear GIS databases.

This first “WOW Class of ‘03” will be reviewing curriculum modules over the next several months – we are really looking forward to continued work with them and appreciate their great southern hospitality!
(not to mention the seafood…)

Here's the WOW PowerPoint template and check out the news from the New York workshop held in November 2003.
