The Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections Education Sessional Committee is hosting a virtual Natural History Education DemoCamp.

The goal is to share, discover, and discuss educational materials that have a framework in natural history. This is building upon our previous iterations of the 'education share fair' that were hosted at the annual meeting.

The Natural History Education (NHE) DemoCamp is designed to provide materials and resources to teachers, educators, and faculty looking for easy-to-adopt educational materials that engage students with the natural world. The NHE DemoCamp format allows educators access to open education resources and provides opportunities to discuss these resources with the teachers and educators who developed the materials.
