The Ocean Drilling Program and SCR*TEC at Texas A&M University invite middle school teachers to apply on-line to attend the Intensive 2000, June 12-16.  The intensive will include exciting educational opportunities in both earth science and instructional technology.  Sessions will focus on hands-on training, and teachers will have unlimited access to some online, nationally recognized, instructional tools and resources that are available to school districts at no charge.  These technologies can enhance and facilitate the instruction of the earth sciences by transforming curriculum materials into an interactive and engaging format.  The intensive sessions will also spotlight online professional development solutions and resources.  In addition, each participant will learn how to create a web based science lesson for their students by using the award winning programs, Trackstar and QuizStar.
