Experience how local tribes, farms, and non-profits are providing climate solutions in Whatcom County that can inspire hope and resilience in the classroom! This field-based course focuses on solutions that support equity and justice that are currently being implemented in Whatcom County. Teaching for the Climate Collaborative will guide participants through classroom-ready STEM activities that illustrate how climate change is affecting different stakeholders and ecosystems. Community members will share their expertise in developing solutions. Participants, while together, will co-design bringing engineering design solutions into the classroom.
