Introduction to the RISE Challenge
This session, hosted by Earth Force program manager Justin Zakoren, will introduce teachers to the RISE Challenge. The RISE Challenge is open to Colorado educators and students, grades 5 – 10. Guided by the Earth Force Community Action & Problem-Solving Process, participants learn about the natural hazards impacting their communities, select an issue to focus on, conduct in-depth research and engage community stakeholders, define a strategy for addressing their natural hazard issue, and present it in an action plan proposal.
HEART Force teachers are welcome to participate in the RISE Challenge; the Earth Force program provides a pedagogical framework and classroom tools that compliment HEART Force curriculum.
Certificates for teacher professional development contact hours will be available for participants upon request.
