Videoconference Offerings from Roper Mountain Science Center

Roper Mountain’s instructors come direct to your classroom through two-way videoconferencing.  Each 45 minute lesson is unique & engaging, and live from Greenville, South Carolina. Bring the excitement of a field trip, even if you can’t leave the school (or travel out of state)! We’ve connected to some of their programs in the past and teachers have enjoyed them. Science and social studies selections include:

Super Cool Science! (Grades 2-7)
Wagons West
(Grades 3-6)
What Telescopes Do! (Grades 3-6 – Offered only to schools outside GCS)
Incredible Invertebrates of the Tropical Rainforest (Grades 3-5)
Rome: Culture & Conquest (Grades 6-9)

lots of new links taking place this month

The next two weeks are very busy with New Links, the distance learning program of Cooperating School Districts. Take a look at what we have coming up!

In our schools, classes will be connecting for multiple sessions with content providers like Roper Mountain Science Center for Super Cool Science; Berrien RESA for MysteryQuest; Lee Richardson Zoo for Ready, Set, Recycle; Muskingum Valley ESC for Egg to Butterfly; and with the Hoover Presidential Library for Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Live, from Cooperating School Districts’ distance learning room, we have content providers connecting to schools outside of the state. Science educator Robert Powell (in photograph) from the Challenger Learning Center-St. Louis will present to schools in Arizona and New York and author Barri Bumgarner conducts a videoconference with a high school in Tennessee tomorrow. Author Amy Sklansky will also be back to connect to Independence Elementary in the Francis Howell School District.
