Teaching Science-Based Water Education!
Location: Fremont, CA
Sponsored By: Alameda County Water District; Water Education Foundation
Description: Fremont, Union City and Newark Educators! Join us for a FREE workshop for K-12 educators that will engage you in fun, hands-on, activities to get your students thinking about the value of water, how it connects us all and their role in stewarding this vital natural resource!
You’ll experience a variety of Project WET activities to engage your students in the exploration of water loaded with concepts and skills connected to Common Core and Next Generation Science standards.
This training also includes an overview of the Lower Alameda Creek Fish Passage Program and a behind-the-scenes look tour of the newly completed fish ladder – an $80 million investment and multi-agency partnership to protect the environment and wildlife of the creek and ensure water supply reliability for the people of Fremont, Newark and Union City.
Lunch will be provided, and all attendees will receive a free copy of Project WET Guide 2.0 with access to over 110 water education activities and detailed NGSS correlations upon completion of the workshop, plus an opportunity to register for CEU credit.
