ASFL Elementary Magnet Teacher Invited to Participate in Sea Grant Consortium
Date: Mar 03 , 2023
Ms. Sarah Pauls, a science magnet teacher at the Academy for Science and Foreign Language, was selected to participate with ten other highly skilled educators from across the state in the Advancing Coherent and Equitable Systems of Science Education (ACESSE) Gulf Coast Collaborative at Dauphin Island Sea Lab.
Ms. Pauls and other participants will learn more about lesson planning methods to promote science and STEM education in the classroom. Ms. Pauls selection and participation in this consortium serves as evidence that HCS magnet program teachers are motivated in providing unique and innovative experiences for all students.
The Gulf Coast Collaborative, sponsored by the National Science Foundation-funded ACESSE Project is a collaboration of Science and STEM educators from Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi. This initiative was developed collaboratively by state science leads in each state along with guidance from the Education Director of the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium and the Chair of Discovery Hall Programs at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab. Top educators from each state were invited to apply and participate in this special program.
Participants will learn and use resources to help engage students in meaningful science learning opportunities, and to guide community partners and teachers in the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) curriculum materials. Participants will also learn about the Gulf Coast Sea Grant Consortium focus areas of coastal ecosystem health, sustainable fisheries, resilient aquaculture economies, environmental literacy, and the relevance of connecting this content to science education.
