Project Title & Description
Sierra Nevada Climate Change Program
Through a hands-on curriculum focused on watershed and ecosystem dynamics and how climate change impacts those ecosystems, the recipient will use the tools of scientific journaling and experimental design as well as hands-on activities to help teachers develop skills. This project will allow participants to study the biological and ecological systems of the Sierra Nevada, the natural functioning rhythms of a watershed, and how this region influences the health of the entire state. Participants will also participate in dozens of hands-on investigative, scientific, and role-playing exercises that they can bring directly back to their own classrooms.
