$500 available to Omaha teachers for NMSSI science course

Tuition fellowships of $400 (plus $100 of travel support) are available for three Omaha teachers who sign up for the NMSSI graduate course GEOS 898: Geology of North America.

GEOS 898 (Section # 691, Class # 8022) is being offered by the Nebraska Math and Science Summer Institutes at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's city campus from July 9-13 and 16-20, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Thanks to the generosity of the Pfizer Corporation, the NMSSI has three more $400 fellowships for science teachers who register (either in MyRed for current UNL or UNO students or through Teach Nebraska for first-time graduate students) for GEOS 898 (#8022) by June 28.

Combined with the 20 percent discount awarded to all Nebraska teachers, this enables science teachers to take a 3-credit hour, graduate level course for only $260 in tuition (plus fees) – compared with more than $825 for standard in-state, graduate tuition. The three Omaha teachers will also qualify for $100 in travel support to help cover the cost of gas to drive to Lincoln.

Registration steps can be found at: http://scimath.unl.edu/nmssi. The last of the four steps is to officially apply for the $400 NMSSI Fellowship online (please indicate in your uploaded letter that you are a science teacher who heard about this $400 fellowship offer).

Again, please complete course registration and the fellowship application by June 28. Contact Lindsay Augustyn at laugustyn2@unl.edu with questions.

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

GEOS 898: Geology of North America (Class # 8022)
July 9-13 and 16-20, 2012 (1 p.m. to 5 p.m.)
Meets: 203 Bessey Hall, UNL City Campus

This course will discuss how the geology of the North American continent contains classic examples of nearly every geologic process that has acted to form the crust of the Earth (e.g. the San Andreas Fault, Yellowstone National Park, Nebraska Sandhills) and will explore the processes of plate tectonics and the way that the surface of the Earth (and life thereon) has evolved throughout geologic time. Instructor: Cara Burberry, Dept. of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
