Our Education team has made a quick pivot to support our wide network of teachers with a new virtual offering: GMRI Home Delivery.
Home Delivery is a menu of online learning experiences adapted from our existing education programs. All of these virtual programs feature the same high-quality authentic science experiences teachers have come to know and love.
The lessons that comprise Home Delivery are facilitated by our experienced educators to give our teacher partners a break from carrying the load alone.
GMRI educators offer five 45-minute class periods held at regular times over the course of a week. These experiences include LabVenture Express — a virtual learning experience adapted from our LabVenture program — as well as nature writing and citizen science lessons.
Also available to teachers and their students are Scientist-to-Go meetups, in which students participate in a video chat with a GMRI scientist to learn about their research interests and methods.
“Our students have been so excited to learn from other people this week and the experience has boosted our online attendance and engagement tremendously,” said Sarah Ober, a participating 6th-grade teacher from Molly Ockett School. “As teachers, we miss our students more than we ever thought possible; seeing them excited about learning again has brought tears to our eyes more than once.”
