Where is Away? 2020 Postponed
June 22, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm CDT
An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until June 26, 2020
This class has been postponed due to site visit restrictions from COVID-19. We hope to reschedule all or part of it at a later date.
Teachers, mark your calendar for this one-of-a-kind experiential learning program! Seats are limited – registration opens in March.
Experience hands-on STEM learning with SCARCE! Let us immerse you in trash – well, in the problems, concerns and solutions that surround the “stuff” we make, buy, use and throw away, day in and day out! We’ll travel by bus to explore landfills, recycling centers and other sites, to help you understand the many processes that deal with all this garbage. We also take time each day to experiment, build, discuss and digest where we have been and why. Tons of fun! Lots of learning! Great resources!
This course is designed to align with NGSS.
