Come learn with EarthGen, formerly known as Washington Green Schools, in this virtual professional development opportunity designed for science and CTE teachers in Puget Sound Region. Teachers will explore the complexities of first foods, food injustice as exacerbated by climate change and what action they can take with their students.
November 13 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
December 14 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Through asynchronous and synchronous learning, participants will have a chance to authentically engage with activities and experts as they grow their understanding 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 and learn about important climate change indicators around Puget Sound.
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 our 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 stipend from the ESD upon completion of the entire eight-hour STEM Seminar experience.
