June 22 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


When was the last time it rained, and where did that water end up? How can you use these questions to spark inquiry and insight in your own classroom?


Join us for Understanding Urban Water Systems, a free virtual teacher professional development workshop led by our Urban School Programs team!

Uncover the often-hidden stormwater systems in Seattle, and then collaborate with other teachers to brainstorm ways you can use this content and related phenomena with your students.

When: Monday, June 22 from 1:00 – 3:00pm

Where: Zoom. (We’ll send out the Zoom link two days prior to the session.)

Who: This workshop is aimed at 3rd – 8th grade teachers in King County. Informal educators are welcome!


  • 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.


2 STEM clock hours are available pending approval from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). Stipends are also available for classroom teachers in King County!
