Online event

Analyze and interpret recent climate science data with Dr. Kat Huybers, a climate scientist and lecturer from the University of Washington and progress understanding on the most salient climate change indicators in the region. Additionally, teachers will explore the efforts to conserve and protect shellfish, its cultural significance and how these efforts are indicative of a greater effort to address climate change. Teachers will leave this training with increased preparedness to leverage a local species or climate change impact in their classroom to spur action in their community. 

This workshop includes three live Zoom sessions and some asynchronous work to be done before each Zoom session.
