Join the Environmental Nature Center and Population Education for an interactive, 2-hour professional development workshop. Presenter Helen de la Maza will help us understand global challenges and sustainable solutions through hands-on activities that utilize real world issues and data. Explore interdisciplinary learning strategies that challenge students to make meaningful associations between individuals, communities, and global issues, while building essential skills in social studies, geography, science, and math. Presented activities use role-playing, representational models, group problem-solving, and simulation games to explore the social and environmental impacts of human population growth.
Afterwards we’ll enjoy a light meal together and share some wine by the campfire before breaking out the marshmallows and skewers to make some s’mores!
