PLT Climate Change and Project WET Workshop

For Formal and Non-formal Educators
It's an educational twofer day. By attending this workshop you will obtain materials for two award-winning national environmental education programs---Project Learning Tree's Southeastern Forests and Climate Change and Project WET.

Climate change is an important natural process that can be accelerated by human activities. Learn how to teach about this important process and integrate it into your curriculum, lessons and activities.

Project WET 2.0 is chock full of activities that assist you in making connections to science, language arts, reading, technology and more. Water is a finite resource that must be managed and protected as evidenced by weather conditions in Florida with its periods of drought, hurricanes and rain events.

How is this relevant to my curriculum?
The activities explore real world STEM topics including the carbon cycle, computer models and databases, engineering, and life cycle assessments of products. The activities are correlated to the Next Generation Science Standards. And, in support of Florida Standards, these activities also enable students to practice critical thinking and writing skills.
