Description


The Science of Sustainability: Modeling NGSS Strategies for Teaching Climate Change

Led by: Glen Stuart, Jessica Pagodin and Amy Busey

Complex problems require complex solutions and global climate change is no exception. How can students explore the complexity of climate change as well as potential solutions within the NGSS framework? In this workshop we'll explore a range of strategies for moving beyond traditional environmental science by focusing on the interdisciplinary field of sustainability science. Through hands-on activities and discussion in both teacher and student-mode, participants will learn how to optimize the use of free materials using the Socratic method of modeling to motivate students to resolve real world issues. Teachers will also have the opportunity to try out an online tool that helps students analyze and interpret climate data. If FREE, NGSS, and MODELING peak your interest join us on March 10th.


We are excited to partner with the Center for Children and Technology, and to share work from their recent project Zoom In! Learning Science with Data.


This is a full day workshop, but we want to make space for folks who can only attend the morning or afternoon sessions as well. We'll be in session from 10am - 1pm and then break for pizza lunch. At 1:30pm we'll resume and end at 4pm. We encourage you to join us for the whole day, but you are welcome to join for the morning or afternoon portion! Contact us if you have any questions.

Pizza Lunch for all at 1pm!
