Investigating Invasive Species with Washington Pest Watch for Middle School
(This workshop is FULL)
Attention all 6th through 8th grade formal educators interested in learning about invasive species!
Scotch broom, mussels, and beetles – oh my! Washington is being invaded! With Pacific Education Institute and the Washington Invasive Species Council, you can become familiar with a state-wide citizen science 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 of grades 6 through 8 to the free Washington Pest Watch curriculum, modeling the use of some resources to help support this kind of work in distance or hybrid K-12 learning models. Don’t be fooled by the virtual nature of this event – you will want to get out and get on the hunt for some of Washington’s most notorious invaders!
Participants will receive:
- 3 Washington State approved STEM clock hours
- A $75 participation stipend
