The DIG Field School


The DIG Field School connects K-12 teachers with Burke and UW scientists at active field research sites. Teachers participate in current scientific investigations into the extinction of dinosaurs and the rise of mammals, gaining hands-on field experience and increasing their confidence teaching Earth sciences.

DIG Field School is free for teachers, and includes: four days at an active paleontological field research site; Continuing Education Units for participants; lesson plans and course materials; and ongoing educational coaching.
