TIC-nology Conference Highlights

by Lilli Genovesi

Our October 11 conference was a success! Over 150 TIC educators, supporters and volunteers attended the event.

Conference workshops included:

  • Glogs and Webcams - Using Technology to Heighten Student Engagement in TIC by Jack Cooley from The Chapin School.
  • Building TIC within the Curriculum by Debra Levy and Heather Schucker from A. Macarthur Barr Middle School.
  • Virtual Visits by Christina Connors from Lakeland Copper Beech Middle School.
  • Water trails - Mountain Top to Tap by Mira Rubens and Karine Kelley from P.S. 230 K.
  • Fly-Casting Demonstration by the Croton Watershed Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
  • Aquarium Maintenance with John Fischer from the Long Island Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
  • Floods in the Catskills - An Educational Opportunity by Aaron Bennette, Deputy Coordinator, Ulster County Department of the Environment.

I would like to thank all of the presenters, resource fair representatives, volunteers, teachers and everyone that attended for making this such a lovely event. I would also like to thank our generous sponsors, including the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP), New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), Catskill Watershed Corporation (CWC) and ConEdison for helping to make this conference a success. I am looking forward to another great conference next year.
