Description

CENTRAL CALIFORNIA K - 12 EDUCATORS! Climate change is having a profound impact on California water resources, as evidenced by long-term changes in snowpack, sea level, river flows and annual temperatures.

Join the California Department of Water Resources Climate Change team for a day learning about the science of climate change, how local to Federal water managers are applying the science to safeguard California’s water supply and help develop more climate resilient communities – and how the interdisciplinary activities of Project WET can help you integrate climate change science knowledge, concepts and skills back in the classroom!

Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) activities are designed to engage students of all ages - in formal and non-formal education settings - in the study of water through interactive simulations, use of models and reality-based scenarios. Interdisciplinary Project WET activities supplement existing curriculum and are correlated to and reinforce practices integrated within Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards - provide strong foundations for STEAM, Project-Based and Service Learning programs.

Participants attending this training will receive great information on current climate science, how the science is being applied to increase the resiliency of California water systems, a copy of Project WET Guide 2.0, an opportunity to receive 0.8 CEU credit a $50 stipend - AND refund of your $25 registration fee following completion of the training! A light breakfast, coffee and lunch provided courtesy of the Burris Park Foundation.
