Abstract

Many K-12 teachers are lacking in formal education in the physical sciences. Both the K-12 schools and the community colleges are in need of instructors who are well versed in the sciences. This presentation will discuss how these individuals can obtain M.S. degrees in Geosciences, Biology, or Interdisciplinary Science (Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Math, and Physics). These degrees are offered online and are taught both at a level and in a manner that can be utilized by these teachers. These programs have been very successful, with over 300 individuals from across the country presently enrolled.
