Come learn with EarthGen in this virtual professional development opportunity Come learn with EarthGen in this virtual professional development opportunity designed for teachers in ESD 101 & 171. Teachers will explore the complex challenges exacerbated by climate change in our food system, such as water use, and what action they can take with their students. Through asynchronous and synchronous learning, participants will have a chance to authentically engage with activities and experts as they grow their understanding of how climate change has and will impact their community. Analyze and interpret recent climate science data with Dr. Kat Huybers, a climate scientist and lecturer from the University of Washington.
February 15 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
March 1 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
March 29 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Teachers will leave this training with increased preparedness to facilitate climate science-focused activities using the science & engineering practices of developing and using models, analyzing and interpreting data and constructing explanations and designing solutions. Teachers will learn from professionals in their region who are doing work to combat this climate change impact in an effort to prepare them with resources to spur action. Additionally, this training aligns with the Agriculture Sciences and STEM CTE pathways.
Teachers will receive a $150 stipend from the ESD upon completion of the entire 10 hour STEM Seminar experience, along with 10 STEM Clock Hours provided by EarthGen. Teachers will have until April 5th (one week after the last session) to complete all asynchronous work, before clock hours and stipends are processed.
