Dinosaurs - an ancient bridge to new learning

Dinosaurs - an ancient bridge to new learning

DESCRIPTION

30 middle school teachers from 20 Eastern Montana schools are participants in the ITEST Paleo Exploration Project, created in partnership between the University of Montana and Fort Peck Paleontology.  As part of this project, teachers go through several 2-day intensive trainings on using GPS units and GIS software; over summer, they will bring students to one of two summer institutes where they will do real, scientific work on fossil material that they (teachers and students) might find.
