Conversations about human-induced climate change can be overwhelming, however the topic provides a unique opportunity to weave together subjects such as evolution and adaptation, space, technology, environmental justice, and more. Join us for a collaborative effort to plan discussions and build resources to help learners better understand climate change. Meet with other formal and informal educators to develop activities that focus on design thinking, offer possible solutions that can be implemented in your area, and help learners find and use existing climate data in a meaningful way. We’ll use the new STEELS standards to guide discussions and practice project-based learning techniques.
This workshop welcomes educators from all subject areas and grade levels.
If more than 50% of your students qualify for free or reduced-price school lunch, your school or organization will be eligible for a scholarship towards a museum field trip after the workshop.
Funding is available to reimburse your school or district for substitute teacher costs on the day that you attend this workshop.
