Track: STEM in Education
Biodiversity PEEK STEAM workshops help educators see that science and art are creative arenas where mistakes are important and that curiosity, compassion and wonder spark real learning.
In this session, teachers will learn to empower their students by doing real, student-driven, conservation and citizen-science projects outside!
Handouts will be given at the end that share the SunPrint lesson, give tips for sharing citizen science biodiversity photography from their own school yards, and assist in applying for grants to fund student-driven biodiversity improvement projects for their schools. Questions will be taken.
Presenter: Stephanie “Jo” Bowman, Education Director, The Biodiversity Group
