We have begun our next set of workshops for the next 5 weeks:

September 30th-November 8th

Ms. Jeanette

Driving Question: How do we step up to become better stewards of our environment?

Competencies: Scientific Investigation & Persuasion

In this project cycle, learners will be exploring what it means to be stewards of their environment and pushing for change in their communities. We began the cycle by investigating which sorbents are best at cleaning up oil spills and how density plays a role in the process. Learners compared aquatic oil spills to desert spills and began theorizing what threats are greatest to their personal urban ecosystem. As the cycle progresses learners will search for scientific solutions to local problems which strike chords within their hearts and create calls to action for their community.
