Watershed and Coastal Impacts
Friday and Saturday, October 4 and 5
8:30 am to 4:00 pm
Sea level rise is having detrimental effects to the stability of fragile marshland habitats, waterways and beaches right here on the South Shore. Join us for a two-day workshop on climate change related Watershed and Coastal Impacts with our partners from the North and South Rivers Watershed Association, Cohasset Center for Student Coastal Research and Holly Hill Farm.

The South Shore Natural Science Center is proud to present a new professional development program for third to sixth grade teachers: “Hot Topic: Climate Change in the Classroom.”

This series of two-day workshops is designed to introduce third-to-sixth grade teachers to climate change programs and projects they can conduct in their classrooms and schoolyards to excite, educate and engage their students about environmental science, and through which they may see the effects of climate change in the natural world. The content and materials will support the 2016 Massachusetts STE Frameworks.

Teachers will be visited by guest lecturers from our partner environmental education and conservation organizations and attend field trips to local institutions conducting climate change research and facilitating Citizen Science projects. Working in groups, teachers will be challenged to develop and facilitate the implementation of a hands-on participatory climate change project for families to use as a demonstration at an SSNSC public program in early December 2019.

A $25 non-refundable registration fee will be assessed per workshop.  Each participant will receive a curriculum kit tailored to the workshop theme, a $100 stipend for classroom use and 15 PDPs per workshop. Lunch is provided.
