Mount Rainier National Park offers a variety of free education workshops each year. These interdisciplinary workshops combine instruction, activities, field sessions, curriculum development, and curriculum review focus groups.

Come spend a few lovely summer days at the park with US Geologic Survey scientists and park educators. The workshop will be a mix of content, curriculum activities, and field experiences. This workshop is designed for middle school teachers who teach about volcanoes, volcanic processes, products, and hazards. The interdisciplinary curriculum focuses on the science of Cascade Volcanoes in general and the specifics of Mount Rainier volcano and the hazards associated with living in its shadow. Participating teachers will receive curriculum materials and additional resources to use with their students.

Learn more and register for the course at the National Park Service Website.
