Come learn with EarthGen in this virtual professional development opportunity designed for teachers in ESDs 101, 123, 105, and 171.
Becky Bronstein, Dr. Kat Huybers, Bethany Kogut
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 on progressing understanding of the most salient climate change indicators in eastern Washington. Teachers will explore the complexities of Sharp-tailed Grouse and their experiences of climate change and what action they can take with their students.
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 developing 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 in their community.
Teachers will receive a stipend from the ESD upon completion of the entire 10-hour STEM Seminar experience.
