Event description

Description

Join us for a day of classroom and field learning focused on the topic of Marine Debris, and engage in Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) with your students!

Participants will engage in hands-on activities from the Marine Debris STEAMSS curriculum developed for the Oregon Coast, and explore locally-available educational materials that can be checked out and used with students.

The resources and best practices we share will support teachers to design and implement a Project Based Learning (PBL) unit this spring. Students will be invited to a Student Watershed Symposium in late Spring to share their projects with their peers and community.

This free workshop is designed for formal and informal educators of students in Grade 6-12. Lunch will be provided. Please note that part of the day will be spent outdoors, so be sure to dress for the weather.

Benefits to Workshop Participants

  • $100 stipend for attending the workshop
  • Connections to resources (curriculum, people, materials) that support PBL planning and implementation
  • Engage in classroom and field activities that model MWEEs and support PBL
  • Time to create an implementation plan

Post-Workshop Opportunities
