The UW PCC hosts workshops that promote interaction between science teachers and UW scientists with the goal of bringing our current understanding of climate into the classroom.
Update! We are in the planning stage of a “Current Climate for Science Teachers” workshop at the UW-Seattle campus, to be held in late Winter or early Spring 2019. Models will be a big focus, and we will be partnering with the “Ambitious Science Teaching” experts from the College of Education. Want to keep up to date? Want to share your particular interests and needs, as an educator?
In October 2016 we hosted “Current Climate for Science Teachers” at the UW-Seattle campus.
Presentations were made by subject area experts, including both faculty and graduate students from STEM disciplines.
2016 Presentations and schedule
In October 2015 we took a team to the Washington State Teachers Association Annual Meeting.
We presented and discussed results from recent IPCC and other reports, and gave participants the opportunity to dig deeper into Ocean Acidification, Landslides and Paleoclimate labs.
