BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE WORLD: TEACHING ENGINEERING AND SUSTAINABILITY PRACTICES IN THE MIDDLE SCHOOL SCIENCE CLASSROOM
June 25-26, 2014

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. TO BE PLACED ON THE WAITING LIST PLEASE EMAIL jll119@pitt.edu.

 
Spend two days at the Mascaro Center for Sustainable Innovation at the University of Pittsburgh learning how to enhance your science curriculum with engineering and sustainability practices.  Each day experience a reading, writing and lab designed for the middle school science classroom.  Interact with engineers leading the way in sustainability practices, and experience sustainability in Pittsburgh firsthand with interactive field trips.

 

Leave with the materials and knowledge to enhance sustainability education in your classroom.  Participants will experience and receive standards-based modules that include reading and writing activities in addition to lab experiences to enhance science education.  A certificate of completion, a "tool kit" of materials needed to perform the engineering labs, and a $500 stipend is provided at the conclusion of your experience.  Onsite parking and lunch are provided for the two days.  We hope to see you this summer!

Funding for this professional learning experience is provided through a grant from the Heinz Endowment.
