Are you looking for fun (yet instructive) ways to teach students about watersheds and environmental stewardship? Hands-on activities that engage students are a great way to accomplish this. This course will feature hands-on activities and will offer a field-trip component designed to connect you with the local Rock River watershed and provide you with tools and techniques for guiding students both in and outside the classroom.

Whether science is something you teach every day or several times a year, this course will increase your knowledge of watersheds, water quality and stormwater pollution prevent on as well as provide you with activities you can use in your own classroom. At the end of the course you will have an understanding of your local Rock River watershed, methods to protect and improve that watershed, and activities to help you share this knowledge with your students.

This is a free event but limited to the first 40 registrants 

*This workshop is available for 1 undergrad credit at an additional charge of $318.22. Please note that course credit registration is separate from registration for the workshop.

“The course offered a good balance of lecture, hands-on, out in the field, and computer work.”

“I like that we did things rather than just talk about them.”
