The Future of Food: A Climate Science STEM Seminar

Mon, November 8 4:00 PM - Mon, December 13 2021 5:00 PM


  • Becky Bronstein
  • Dr. Kat Huybers
  • Laura M. Tyler


Come learn with EarthGen, formerly known as Washington Green Schools, in this virtual professional development opportunity designed for teachers in ESD 112. Teachers will explore the complexities of first foods, food injustice as exacerbated by climate change and what action they can take with their students. Through asynchronous and synchronous learning, participants will have a chance to authentically engage with activities and experts as they grow their understanding how climate change has and will impact their community. Analyze and interpret recent climate science data with Dr. Kat Huybers, a climate scientist and lecturer from the University of Washington and progress understanding on the most salient climate change indicators in southwest Washington.

Teachers will leave this training with increased preparedness to facilitate climate science-focused activities using the science & engineering practices of developing and using models, analyzing and interpreting data and constructing explanations and designing solutions. Teachers will learn from professionals in their region who are doing work to combat this climate change impact in an effort to prepare them with resources to spur action.
