A free course will be offered for Maui educators on climate change and coastal resilience in Kīhei on June 23, 2023.
In this one-day workshop for teachers of Grades 4-12, participants will engage in hands-on training that combines classroom and field-based learning.
In the morning, they will visit two coastal ecosystems to engage in hands-on investigation of climate change impacts to Maui coastal areas, and, the rest of the day, they will analyze climate change using innovative technology tools and resources at Learning Endeavors.
Maui teachers who are looking for a solution-oriented approach to climate science education can apply by May 15.
This Champions of Coastal Resilience Course for Educators is on June 23 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
