Human Impacts on Water Quality, building the next generation of water protectors! K-12
Water quality and quantity are some of the biggest issues facing humanity today. How can we prepare the next generation of leaders to find solutions to these problems? This workshop will demonstrate environmental lessons that support students understanding of San Diego’s waterways, actions to minimize and monitor pollution, and connections between living things and one of our most vital resource, water. Can we support Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards while teaching environmental education? Using real-world problems (i.e. water pollution) we can help students deepen their knowledge and problem-solving skills.

Climate Kids: Using Art, Science, and Storytelling to Build Community Resilience
Climate Kids is a series of community level collaborative projects to support youth engagement on climate change through action based science activities, storytelling, and art. Climate Kids brings together artists, scientists, and storytelling into a unified partnership to inspire and educate children. Activities take place both inside and outside of the classroom and field trips are paired with class modules. Climate Kids projects also connect educators with training opportunities in climate science. Interested? Learn more about opportunities to join this collaborative effort and become a part of the network. Climate Kids is an initiative of the Climate Science Alliance-South Coast. (PRI, ELM, MS, HS)
