Learn about how urban stormwater systems and related conservation issues connect to students and support your science instruction.
When was the last time it rained, and where did that water end up? How does this connect to your science instruction?
Join IslandWood Urban School Programs and King County to uncover the often-hidden stormwater systems in your neighborhood, and then work with other teachers on how you might use this content and related phenomena with your students.
- This workshop is aimed at K-8th grade teachers; informal educators are welcome.
- 2 STEM clock hours available pending approval.
- We will be meeting online via Zoom; the link will be included in your confirmation email after registering for the event.
- Build understanding of urban water systems phenomena, including stormwater and Combined Sewer Overflows, and how you and your students interact with them.
- Work with IslandWood staff and other teachers to identify stormwater phenomena and NGSS connections.
- Use science learning best practices to generate and share ideas about how water systems content can be integrated into classroom curriculum for remote and school-based use.
