American Meteorological Society (AMS) to offer distance learning professional development courses

With generous federal grant support, AMS is able to offer distance learning professional development courses to teachers for only the academic fee of $105 per course (which includes all course text materials).  Each course offers three graduate credits.  The three courses are DataStreme Atmosphere, DataStreme Ocean, and DataStreme Earth’s Climate System, and more information on each is provided here: https://www.ametsoc.org/index.cfm/ams/education-careers/education-program/k-12-teachers/datastreme-program/.  These courses provide terrific foundational knowledge that can help teachers better present these scientific subjects in support of the state science requirements.

(This spring is the last semester our funding will allow us to offer the courses at a fee of $105.  Starting in fall of 2019, the fees will rise to $450 – which is still a great deal for three graduate credits, but not as great as what we can offer the spring semester starting this January.)
