Sun-Earth Day Presents: Ancient Observatories, Timeless Knowledge

Local Happenings

Michigan, Seaborg
The Seaborg ERC at Northern Michigan University hosted a day-long workshop for K-12 teachers on activities for teaching astronomy and physics. Staff from our ERC conducted a session on integrating science, social studies, the arts and language arts. The presentation used activities from the Sun-Earth Day packet on Ancient Observatories, and demonstrated the NASA Sun-Earth Day web site. Teachers were especially interested in the Native American Connections, since several Native American tribes are represented in our area. Twenty-one teachers attended the workshop, each receiving a packet of NASA materials.
