Submerge yourself for a day in the dynamic world of sustainability! We will spend the day diving into various environmental issues we face in our community and the role sustainable solutions can play in addressing them. Learn methods to protect our water, conserve energy, restore our soils and preserve our natural resources.  We will also explore emerging careers in the field of sustainability.  

This fast-paced STEM class is packed with resources, hands-on activities, and ideas for the classroom that are adaptable to in-person and virtual learning.  Activities and concepts are NGSS-aligned and highly teachable and learnable for multiple grade levels. This class will answer many environmental questions, encourage deeper exploration of environmental topics and provide practical and personal connections with the world around you.

This live virtual class will be held on Zoom and include:

  • live presentations
