This three-day, highly interactive workshop will focus on gaining subject matter expertise, exploration of available resources, and developing instructional units for students to more deeply understand the components, connections and trends in the changing Southwest environment. The facilitators are dedicated to honoring and using the participating educators’ knowledge and expertise as we work together to develop a deeper understanding of complex systems, and applying systems thinking to Southwestern regional issues of extreme weather, fire, drought, flooding, and ecosystem dynamics. Educators will have significant time to develop strategies for their students to help them create connections between the pieces of the Southwestern “Earth Puzzle”.
The workshop includes field trips to NOAA’s National Weather Service in Bellemont, AZ where we will launch a weather balloon, the Arboretum of Flagstaff where we will engage in a variety of citizen science projects, and the US Geological Survey where we will join in remote sensing activities and increase our ability to use authentic scientific data with our students.
Light breakfast foods, snacks, and a full lunch will be provided daily. Lodging, full breakfast and dinner are not provided. A list of lodging can be found at: https://www.flagstaffchamber.com/flagstaff/visiting-flagstaff/lodging/

The Texas coast faces many environmental threats including sea level rise, hurricanes, and extreme weather events such as Hurricane Harvey. As citizens, we need to develop sustainable solutions to mitigate and adapt to these threats. During this workshop formal and informal educators will be introduced to the current science surrounding these threats through discussions, hands-on activities, and field trips. Educators will also receive training on effective communication of these complex and sometimes controversial topics.
Texas Education Agency - Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits will be provided (28 to 32 hours, depending on final agenda).

Our planet is changing. By exploring our relationship with the planet, each other, and the world, we have the opportunity to build resilience as we learn, grow, and adapt to change in innovative and proactive ways. At the 2018 Hawaii Environmental Education Alliance Symposium (July 23 at the Honolulu Convention Center) attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the use of citizen science data, developing quantifiable research projects, active STEM experiences, connecting with diverse audiences through cultural practice, and more!
A pre-symposium workshop (July 21-22 on Moku O Lo’e) is open to 40 educators and will be available as a PDE3 opportunity for Hawaii K-12 DOE teachers, whom will receive first priority to participate.
Neighbor Island participants are responsible for their own transportation. The scholarship deadline has passed.
