Hawai'i Green Collar Institute
Spring 2019 Professional Development Workshop for Teachers
STEAM Connections to Climate Change, Wildfire, and Community Resilience
February 23 and March 2 - 8:00 am - 2:30 pm
This new workshop will expose teachers to real-world and timely issues of climate change, wildfire, and community resilience that can easily become authentic learning experiences for students. Public, charter, and private school teachers of grades 4-12 students from O’ahu are encouraged to attend to gain first-hand knowledge from community experts and participate in place-based hands-on experiences in the ahupua’a of Honouliuli that will connect teaching to local and global issues. Participants will see how education can seamlessly incorporate STEAM, HA (Nā Hopena A’o), and NGSS. Workshop will take place at various sites including Kapolei High School, Camp Pālehua and UH West O'ahu.
Funding from grants make it possible to offer this workshop at a low fee of $40, which includes lunch, refreshments, and take-home resources. Also as a bonus, Leeward O’ahu teachers (from ‘Ewa to Wai’anae) who complete both sessions and develop a plan to implement project-based STEAM lessons based on this workshop are eligible to receive $250-$500 toward project implementation (e.g., for supplies, bus, and field experiences). A simple proposal will be required.
This is a non-credit professional development workshop and no portfolio is required.
This experience may support teachers’ license renewal.
