Outdoor Education & Raptor Lab Workshop
March 9 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
This is a FREE workshop facilitated by Wolf Ridge made possible by a collaboration with The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota, UMN Extension, and Eagle Bluff ELC.
The grant from LCCMR allows for the development of the “Outdoor Investigator” module of “Raptor Lab” and the FREE teacher trainings being held around the state of Minnesota.
Raptor Lab is an interactive online learning environment that models the process of scientific investigation in real-world settings through the active role-play of different scientific careers involved in veterinary care and wildlife rehabilitation. Then provides a platform for students to team up, investigate outside, and share their own inquiry-based investigations online. Raptor Lab is appropriate for students from sixth grade through high school.
The workshop plans to run from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.
Intended outcomes for the workshop:
1. Learn techniques to bring students outside.
2. Understand how to use Outdoor Investigator as a tool for scientific inquiry.
3. Practice improv!
4. Connect with other teachers and build a network.
5. Feel comfortable leading your students on an outdoor adventure.
While Raptor Lab is intended for students in 6th-12th grade, any and all educators are welcome to join!
