• IslandWood’s teacher professional development series is featured as part of “the most ambitious statewide climate science education initiative in the U.S.” in the University of Washington College of Education’s article about the Washington state ClimeTime initiative. Funded by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI)​, the ClimeTime initiative provides the funding necessary for IslandWood’s professional development series to reach more than 200 teachers and 4,000 students each year. Our workshops and school-based supports help teachers engage their students in climate science that connects the Next Generation Science Standards to real-world stormwater issues. Check out the full article and video here.
