Two Professional Development Opportunities

We have not one, but TWO great opportunities for professional development coming up soon!

Project WET Educator Workshop

Project WET teaches about water resources through hands-on, investigative, easy-to-use activities. In addition to educating students about water, Project WET activities also develop skills such as teamwork, decision making and problem solving. These skills and knowledge prepare learners for the water resource challenges of this century. The curriculum spans grades K-12 with something to offer for all students.

Date: Saturday May 24, 2014 9 am-12 pm
Where: Environmental Studies Center 6101 Girby Road
Mobile AL 36693 RSVP: Anita Salinas asalinas@mcpss.com

Sponsored by the Environmental Education Association of Alabama (EEAA). Participants receive the Project WET curriculum. If it applies to you, please sign up in STIPD!
