‘Getting a GRIP on Groundwater’ Workshop
Groundwater Education for the Classroom!
Location: Water Replenishment District of Southern California, Lakewood
Sponsored By: Water Replenishment District of Southern California; U.S. Geological Survey, California Water Science Center; CalRecycle
Description: LOS ANGELES AREA EDUCATORS! Join us for a groundwater workshop and a teacher field trip as we weave Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs) and Cross Cutting Concepts into the engaging content (DCIs) already featured in two outstanding and proven curricular tools: Project Wet and California’s place-based EEI.
We will tour the Water Replenishment District’s Vander Lans Water Treatment Facility after exploring 3 example lessons to illustrate NGSS style three-dimensional learning. Collegial co-planning is built into this workshop to support your CC/NGSS action plan and develop your knowledge base of the world’s most important substance – water.
Participants will receive a free Project WET 2,0 guide, a printed EEI units of your choice, educational resources from Water Replenishment District & other nonprofits – plus breakfast and lunch!
Continuing Educational Units are available through CSU San Marcos for an additional fee.
