LOTE - A Coastal Bend Environmental Science Education Collaboration
Summer Science Teacher Training

The LOTE project is a collaboration of environmental programs intertwined to provide a weeklong summer academy for elementary teachers. By combining all of these resources into one program, the Learning on the Edge (LOTE) summer academy, sponsored by The Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program, seeks to provide teachers the tools needed to successfully teach science and promote student awareness of local ecology and environmental issues affecting the bays and estuaries.

The CBBEP is tasked with protecting, restoring and enhancing the bays and estuaries of the Texas Coastal Bend. Partnering with already successful educational programs of the Coastal Bend Wildlife Photo Contest Kritters 4 Kids, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Teaching Environmental Science, and the Texas State Aquarium Keepers of the Coast.

If you know any elementary science teachers in the Coastal Bend area, share this information with them about a week-long summer training program (free to teachers).
