FieldSTEM in the Garden for Wahkiakum School District
(for Wahkiakum School District educators only)
Attention K-12 Formal and Para-Educators!
This FieldSTEM in the Garden workshop is the launching point for a series of workshops through the school year to support you in utilizing the school gardens and forest in teaching multiple subjects to your students.
In this in-person* workshop, you will identify what motivates you to be an innovative and engaged instructor, and use that knowledge to find ways to incorporate high-impact field experiences into your teaching. You will tour the facilities at Wahkiakum School District and experience examples of how different content areas can include outdoor activities in the garden and/or the school forest. You will also have the opportunity to learn how your local WSU Extension Office can support you through the various programs they offer.
Participants who attend all day will be eligible to receive 6 Washington State Approved STEM clock hours.
*PEI will be following these COVID-19 guidelines: Everyone is expected to wear masks and practice social distancing when indoors. In situations where social distancing is not possible during outdoor sessions, masks are highly encouraged. If the venue or facility has stricter policies, PEI will abide by those policies. Please do not attend if you currently have symptoms or have had recent exposure to someone that is suspected of or tested positive for a COVID infection. Participants attend at their own risk.
