Teachers will learn the “Outdoor Investigator” module of Raptor Lab, which is an interactive online learning environment that models the process of scientific investigation in real-world settings through the active role-play of different scientific careers involved in veterinary care and wildlife rehabilitation. It provides a platform for students to team up, investigate outside, and share their own inquiry-based investigations online.
Raptor Lab is appropriate for students from fifth grade through high school. Outdoor Investigator allows for flexibility throughout grade levels and subjects. Click on this link to view possible MN Standards hit by using this program.

An LCCMR grant is funding these teacher trainings throughout Minnesota. FREE training and 6 CEUs this school year only!
We can also provide a shorter workshop if that better fits your schedule.
