Educators Tour of Brain: The Inside Story
Tuesday, March 22, 2011
From Phineas Gage to Functional MRIs, the story of the human brain captures the imagination of generations of students. Curators at the American Museum of Natural History bring the latest neuroscience, interactive exhibitions, and vivid imagery to highlight the evolutionary history of the brain, brain diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, and brain chemistry and function. Join the Academy and the education staff at AMNH for an educators tour of Brain: The Inside Story and learn about the amazing resources AMNH has to offer for teachers and students.
The New York Academy of Sciences is pleased to announce its new teacher series Discovering the Urban Environment. The series will feature low-cost or free field trips accessible by NYC public transportation and will allow teachers to "demo" field trips before they take their class. To encourage participation, we invite members to bring up to four guests, including colleagues, students, or family members.
All trips are available for professional development hours and space is extremely limited.
