About: The Arctic is currently warming at a rate much faster than the rest of the world which has important implications for the global climate system. In this FREE teacher workshop, participants will engage with curriculum developers from the University of Colorado Boulder and Arctic scientists as they lead you through, "Arctic Feedbacks: Not all warming is equal", a storyline curriculum tied to NGSS Earth's Systems standards in which students explore important science concepts (e.g., Earth's energy budget, greenhouse effect, feedback loops) to model and explain the Arctic amplification phenomenon. Engage with immersive 360° virtual tours, authentic Arctic datasets, PhET simulations. and app-based labs in this interactive online workshop!
Testimonials from past workshop participants
"I want to give my students relevant and up-to-date learning. I want to be able to show the kids that this is something that is really happening in the world today and is something that will affect their future. This curriculum gives me the means to do this."
"I really liked the virtual format of this workshop. It was an opportunity to meet people from different states and countries that I probably wouldn't have met otherwise. The breakout rooms really helped to focus on a portion of the unit and to allow time to talk through the different activities."
"I love the hands-on where we participate as students! Working with other teachers is very valuable."
