Educators! Join us one of the upcoming free workshops titled, "From Sierra Crest to Pacific Coast." At these workshops you'll receive a free copy of the award-winning Project WET guide containing more than 90 engaging and effective activities, and be among the first to be introduced to the California Coastal Commission's newest guide for teachers, California Coastal Voices, designed to assist secondary teachers in following California's Next Generation Science and Common Core Standards.

You will receive tools and tips to help your students accomplish STEM and NGSS goals, explore natural systems, investigate local environments as a context for learning, and become empowered to participate in decision-making about complex natural resource management issues. There will be a focus on remote sensing skills, modeling, problem-solving, and communication. These workshops will take place both inside and outside the classroom and are open to formal and non-formal educators, with a focus on middle and high school. There will be outdoor investigation of the workshop location led by local experts.

Space is limited in these workshops. Please pre-register by emailing Annie.Frankel@coastal.ca.gov or calling (415) 597-5888. Include the spelling of your name, email, phone number, grade(s) taught and your school or organization as applicable. Professional growth credit can be obtained through UOP's Courses4Teachers, with additional work performed.
