Investigating Invasive Species with Washington Pest Watch for Grades 3-8
March 21 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Attention Washington state Formal 3-8 Educators!
Scotch broom, mussels, and beetles – oh, my! Washington is being invaded! Join Pacific Education Institute and the Washington Invasive Species Council for a deep dive into a state-wide project that empowers students to identify and report invasive species in their schoolyards and neighborhoods and become “first detectors.”
In this online workshop, we will introduce formal educators in grades 3-8 to the free Washington Pest Watch curriculum and model the use of resources to help support this kind of work in K-12 learning models. Don’t be fooled by the virtual nature of this event – you will be motivated to get your students out and join the hunt for some of Washington’s most notorious invaders!
Participants will receive:
- 3 Washington State approved STEM clock hours
- A $50 participation stipend
This workshop is being offered on two different days.
- Tuesday, March 07, 4 PM to 7 PM
- Tuesday, March 21, 4 PM to 7 PM
