Roper Mountain Science Center e-Learning Live! (Grades 2-5)

Daniel Observatory


Join us for a virtual visit to Roper Mountain in this series of live, standards-based demonstrations specifically designed to support student learning in a virtual environment. Each quarter, multiple indicator-specific lessons aligned to the GCS pacing guide will be offered that not only provides subject-specific content, but can also assist students in practicing their inquiry skills.

To maintain proximity to the pacing guide, lessons for each grade level will change every few weeks. New lessons will be added each quarter. Teachers may register for each lesson offered for their grade level. These lessons are offered through Zoom.



Specifics include:

*please note: teachers are required to be logged in with their students

To register, please complete the following:

*please note: because this is a virtual session, there may be multiple classes attending at the same time with up to 250 participants per session

Deadline for registration is four days prior to the date of the session for which you are registering.

Because of our ticketing software, you may receive tickets by email. Please disregard them.
