A team of science and educational experts led by a University of Georgia psychologist and atmospheric scientist will teach a group of Bibb County school teachers what they should teach their students about the science of weather and how to respond safely when it threatens.
About 30 K-8 teachers are expected to attend the Weather Science and Safety Workshop May 23-27 in Macon, according to project leader Alan Stewart, an associate professor in counseling psychology in UGA's College of Education. UGA colleague John Knox, an assistant professor in geography, is a co-investigator in the project, which is funded by a two-year, $149,000 National Science Foundation grant.
