Description

Secondary Science Teachers... 

You are invited to join our ISB team and STEM professionals!  

These 4 synchronous sessions will allow teacher participants to focus on learning about and implementing the interdisciplinary Invisible Forest module. The sessions will also support developing knowledge and skills around the practice of modeling and the cross-cutting concept scale, proportion, and quantity as they apply across the science disciplines. In this PBL module, students in integrated science, marine science, environmental science, biology, biotechnology or STEAM courses use real-world, big data to investigate how our "invisible forest" influences ocean and Earth systems. Students build an art project to represent their new understanding and share this with the broader community. 

Please register as a team of teachers: recruit colleagues from a whole department, a whole district cadre of a specific science course, PLC, or other collaborative team.

Funding provided by the Washington State Legislature through the ClimeTime proviso and is available to Washington State teachers only.

12 STEM clock hours are available

Stipend for attending: $200
