Submit an Application

Please Note:

There will not be a 2008 Earthworks workshop.
Check back for updates on a possible 2009 workshop

Application Instructions

Every year, we have places available for up to ten returning participants and at least fifteen new participants. Applications are evaluated primarily on:

  • your specific teaching goals, and what you anticipate Earthworks can do to help you meet them.
  • number of years teaching science: new, mid-career and experienced.
  • For more on what we look for, click here.


If you have trouble submitting this form please contact us.

Once you have submitted your application, we will send you an e-mail confirming the submission in 24-48 hours. If you do not receive the confirmation e-mail within that time period, please contact the coordinator at 303 492 5670 or e-mail

Please formulate your answers before entering them into this database. It is best to copy your answers from another program and paste them into the boxes. If something goes wrong during the time you are entering, it will not store your answers. Do not fill this form out and print it and submit - it will not show your complete answer.

Thank you for your interest in our program!

Please note: Preference is given to teachers who will gain the most from this experience, those who serve educationally disadvantaged communities and those who are both willing and able to implement innovative pedagogy with their students. Thoughtful, detailed answers to the questions below will help us to understand who you are and how you will apply your Earthworks experiences to your teaching, and how you will contribute to this learning community.
