Nature-Based STEM Community of Practice for Educators – Aug 2-4

Posted by Riverbend Environmental Education Center on May 17, 2022

This year-long, teacher centered program is designed to support teachers in building authentic, multidisciplinary learning experiences for students. We are building a network of formal teachers and informal educators from regional environmental education centers that will work to align authentic outdoor experiences with STEM and Next Generation Science Standards. We will help teachers align their instructional practices to support Diversity, Equity and Inclusion while exploring environmental justice and local environmental issues using NOAA’s Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience (MWEE).

Teachers who register for this program will build professional skills while also directly engaging with their students this year. Students will experience an authentic, Nature Based STEM program in their school that follows NOAA’s MWEE. They will have the opportunity for outdoor exploration and investigation where they can build and practice critical skills in science. Students will receive a virtual video series focused on watersheds, a kit with science tools and resources, and classroom visits. They will work with their teacher to build meaningful action projects where they can help solve problems and contribute to their community.

The kick off Summer Institute is August 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
