Virtual Educator Trek: Early Childhood Dinosaur Science Discovery

  • Thursday, February 11, 2021
  • 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Bring the excitement of dinosaurs back to your classroom! Join us virtually on Zoom as we embark on a prehistoric adventure. Learn how to capture young children’s excitement about the latest dinosaur discoveries to spark a love of science learning.

Upon completion of the workshop, eligible teachers will receive by mail $100 worth of science, math, and literacy materials, a dinosaur tote bag, and an activity-filled flash drive (information on eligibility below). Teachers will use the materials to complete 0.5 hours of homework to earn the full 2 hours of credit.

Credit: Eligible registrants will receive 2 hours (1.5 synchronous and 0.5 asynchronous, once materials arrive) for Early Childhood Renewal Credit CEUs or for Criteria III hours for North Carolina’s Environmental Education Certification Program

Non-eligible registrants will receive 1.5 hours of credits. The 0.5 hours of homework is optional and may be completed if you choose to provide your own materials.

Eligibility: To be eligible to receive the $100 worth of materials, registrants must primarily be educators of preschool children ages 3 to 5 years old. Additionally, over 51% of your students must be from low to moderate income (LMI) families. The LMI household income limit varies by county:

Wake and Johnston: $67,445
Franklin, Nash, Edgecombe, and Wayne: $42,540
Orange, Durham, and Chatham: $62,960
Columbus and Robeson: $41,840

Bladen: $25,900
Pitt: $49,120
