BOP Field Science Update

By admin
April 4, 2016

The NYHF curriculum team and Columbia scientists have been hard at work updating BOP field science protocols. The updated protocols are being used to develop our new BOP field science web platform for collecting ORS data and managing curriculum. The beta launch of the web platform is set for May 1. In the meantime, all of the updated field science docs are available on a shared folder, with the following subfolders: resources and curriculum, data sheets, manuals, and species ID. Meanwhile, Ann and Audrey have also been developing the five corresponding units of field science-aligned classroom curriculum. Each unit of the curriculum – see the graphic organizer below – will have 10-15 lessons. The complete field science curriculum will be available to BOP teachers starting in September 2016. In the meantime, if you want to get a sneak preview and download a few sample lessons you can check out some of their work here. Thanks to the field science team and keep up the great work!
