Are you teaching climate science in your classroom? Growing seedlings indoors or out? Want to learn more or connect with others doing the same? This fall, STEMteachersNYC is excited to launch an EcoSTEM Working Group! With your help and expertise, together we will showcase and share the climate and other environmental science work you are doing with your students, and explore new ways to collaborate and learn from each other!
Our first meet-up will begin with a webinar, co-hosted by Teachers College Initiative for Sustainable Futures and NYC teachers sharing their own climate-focused lessons and units. If you would like to be part of the panel please indicate in the RSVP, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The EcoSTEM working group will be a space to:
- Share lessons and units you have developed around climate change, other local environmental issues, solutions you and your students have worked on – and cross curricular connections you have made.
- Develop and exchange key questions and topics for student discussion and debate.
- Share resources and develop more relevant, interdisciplinary, student-driven climate and environmental STEM curricula.
- Build a network of colleagues to share ideas, resources, successes, and challenges of teaching EcoSTEM!
Additional topics will be chosen based on registrant suggestions. We hope that you will come ready to participate!
