Preparing to implement a high school unit with climate science themes
Secondary Science Teachers… You are invited to join our ISB team and STEM professionals!
Please register as a team of teachers: recruit colleagues from a whole department, a whole district cadre of a specific science course, PLC, or other collaborative team.
These 4 synchronous sessions will allow teacher participants to focus on learning about and implementing the Bioengineering a Sustainable World curriculum module. This module can be used by high school teachers to instruct students about advances in sustainable practices through the lens of green biotechnology. The module teaches students how microalgae can potentially supplement aspects of petroleum consumption with renewable sources of bio-energy and bio-products. Included are videos, case studies, and activities to teach students systems thinking at multiple scales, from global biogeochemical cycles to gene regulation.
Funding provided by the Washington State Legislature through the ClimeTime proviso and is available to Washington State teachers only.
