High school teachers can earn continuing education credits for participating in a workshop on water quality in the Marcellus Shale drilling region to be held in May on the Penn State, University Park campus. The 2017 Shale Network workshop will be held May 18 and 19, 2017 at the Atherton Hotel in State College, adjacent to the Penn State campus.
Teachers can receive credits for attending various events during the workshop. More details about the number of credits and types of events will be announced shortly. For a tentative agenda, please visit the workshop’s website.
Shale Network is a collaborative effort between Penn State, the University of Pittsburgh, and the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Sciences Inc. (CUAHSI) to collect and analyze data on water quality in the Marcellus Shale drilling region. The workshop will provide an opportunity for nonscientists, researchers, experts, government officials, and members of the gas and environmental industries to compare lessons learned about water issues within the northeastern region of shale gas development.
There is a $10 fee for processing the credits, and checks may be made payable to Penn State.
Shale Network has limited funding for lodging and meals for participants, and cannot offer funding to teachers seeking credits at this time.
