Tracking Energy of Food Systems, Day 2 (4th-8th grade teachers)

January 24 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

3 STEM clock hours for attending.

This two part professional development series is designed to help educators understand food systems; growing, producing, processing, and disposing of food. Educators will help students draw connections to climate change and food justice issues. This series will focus on the question: What are we really throwing away when we throw away food? Educators (playing the part of a student), will walk through multiple sequential transferable lessons that incorporate creating and revising models, data collection and analysis, and designing solutions. This series is designed to support 3-D NGSS performance expectations for the 5th-grade band endpoint, though the altered material will be demonstrated to reach middle school. The lessons in this course are sequential and build off knowledge learned in previous lessons. Attendance for both days is requested.
