    In partnership with the NSF funded openVertebrate project, we are pleased to announce the UF CPET 2021 Summer Science Institute:  3D vertebrates: From museum shelves to classrooms. This virtual professional learning opportunity will take place Monday, June 21 – Friday, June 25, 2021. Participants will learn about generating digital 3D objects from vertebrate collections in natural history museums, have the chance to explore ways to incorporate them in the classroom, and work in small groups (~3 teachers) with a scientist to develop learning activities based on their research and career path. Educators will be collaboratively designing activities for use in their own classroom, so all middle and high school science teachers are welcome to apply. Learning activities should align with one or more of the following topics:  function, anatomy, evolution, paleontology. We anticipate ~three hours synchronously each day with time to be determined to best fit the time zones of all participants as well as additional collaborative work time and individual planning.


    TO APPLY:

    Interested educators are invited to apply using the on-line application portal<https://ufl.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8JwcJucC8CPyGZD>.


    Applications will be reviewed, and invitations extended on a rolling basis starting May 15.

    For questions, please contact Dr. Julie Bokor at julie@cpet.ufl.edu<mailto:julie@cpet.ufl.edu> or 352.392.2310.

    OVERVIEW:

    The biology of vertebrate animals provides opportunities to students to learn about anatomy, function, evolution, and paleontology. Participants in this workshop will gain a hands-on introduction to vertebrate diversity through lectures, discussion with scientists and students, and virtual visits to the museum scientific collections to see rare specimens of both living and extinct species. While scientists visiting natural history museums around the world have access to these unique specimens to understand vertebrate biology, this is a resource that students and the public rarely see or even know about. Using three-dimensional imaging as part of the openVertebrate project (or oVert) funded by the US National Science Foundation (https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/overt/), we are creating digital specimens that can be viewed in the classroom, digitally dissected, 3D-printed, and more. Participants in this program will learn about working with these resources and develop teaching modules that convey key concepts in anatomy, function, and evolution.


    The professional learning program:
    Following a general introduction to vertebrate diversity, participants will learn how scientists and students investigate anatomy, function, and evolution using digital three-dimensional anatomical data. During the week, brief presentations from and discussions with research faculty and graduate students highlight the diversity of studies utilizing museum collections as well as provide context to develop classroom lessons. Working in small groups, participants and scientists will work together to brainstorm ideas for translating the oVert project into classroom materials and fully developed learning activities for implementation during the 2021/2022 school year. Emphasis will be placed on translating principles in functional anatomy and evolution into effective teaching materials incorporating digital 3D objects. The workshop will conclude with presentations by participants on the teaching materials they developed during the course of the week.


    Our scientist collaborators include:

    From the University of Florida oVert team and leading the project:

    Dr. Dave Blackburn, Florida Museum of Natural History:  https://www.blackburnlab.org/
    Dr. Jaimi Gray, Florida Museum of Natural History:  https://www.blackburnlab.org/
    Dr. Ed Stanley, Florida Museum of Natural History:  www.EdwardStanley.org<http://www.edwardstanley.org/>, www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/digital-lab<http://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/digital-lab>

    Acceptance to the Summer Science Institute: 3D Vertebrates, From Museum Shelves to Classrooms is a competitive application process. We are looking for phenomenal secondary teachers who are leaders in the classroom, particularly with the use of innovative pedagogical approaches and technologies. We welcome applicants from across the United States and Canada. Participants will receive a stipend depending on level of participation throughout the program and paid by semester.



    TO APPLY:

    Interested educators are invited to apply using the on-line application portal<https://ufl.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8JwcJucC8CPyGZD>. You can return to the on-line application<https://ufl.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8JwcJucC8CPyGZD> and continue working from the same computer.

    About the Presentation

    In her presentation titled, “Teaching for Collective Environmental Action,” Sahar Arbab will discuss why she believes the environmental education field needs to move away from a focus on individual behavior and instead prioritize systemic change. Using examples from her own teaching, Sahar will demonstrate how she is working to prepare young people to take action in their communities and beyond.  Sahar will also discuss the characteristics of strong youth-adult partnerships and how to meaningfully bring young people to the decision-making table.

    About the Presenter

    Sahar Arbab has spent most of her career working in the environmental education field. She has dug in urban gardens alongside youth, managed teen internship programs, and trained classroom teachers. Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, she moved to Washington state in 20

    16 to pursue graduate studies at Western Washington University. After graduating, she worked for two years as a Program Coordinator with Washington Green Schools. Sahar also spent a summer working for Grist as a 2019 fellow with the University of Michigan’s Environmental Fellows Program. Sahar currently manages a career pathway program at King County Parks. She is passionate about creating educational programs informed by communities’ environmental concerns. In her free time she enjoys trail running, reading, cooking, and hiking with her partner and two dogs.
