Meet one of the authors, Science Director of the SeaDoc Society and marine veterinarian Dr. Joe Gaydos, to hear about the launch of this book that hopes to inspire children to learn about the unique ecosystem that encompasses the coastal waters from Seattle’s Puget Sound up to the British Columbia. Network with local colleagues about ideas to integrate this new book with engaging activities that meet the Next Generation Science Standards. Lunch and clock hours provided.
We hope to find out about teacher interest in infusing existing curricula with local context and what teachers need in order to facilitate the dissemination of the text with a lens for inspiring youth to care about where they live and understand their connection to this place.
Participants registered by the end of July will receive a free copy of the book to explore before the workshop, bringing ideas to share.
