Directory of Science-Rich Resources in the Southwest.
Finley, Sandra; And Others
This directory is designed for use by science educators in the five-state region served by the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL): Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. Most of the resources are located in these five states, but national resources that might be of interest have also been included. In this directory, science-rich resources are defined as organizations that offer opportunities to enhance teaching and learning in the science classroom. These opportunities can include teacher workshops, tours for students, free or low-cost print materials, and many other tangibles and intangibles. Some of the science-rich resources listed could provide a scientist with whom a classroom teacher could create a partnership or other long-term association. The directory does not include teacher resources offered through formal channels such as college and university course offerings, services provided by regional education service centers and state departments of education, or publishers. The directory is organized by state with entries then arranged by category. Categories include the following: aquaria, botanical gardens, and zoos; educational organizations; museums and science centers; nature and environmental centers; professional organizations; state agencies; state-based federal programs; and university affiliates.
