How can we help students and teachers build climate resilience by problem-solving for a better world?

Join Dr. Kirstin Milks for exemplar lessons that harness the healing power of cutting-edge climate science by having students dream up sci-fi worlds of the future — and how humans in those worlds can not only survive but collaborate to thrive!

This interdisciplinary workshop is designed to foster student interest in climate science, politics, economics, and culture by bringing standards-aligned science lessons and play-informed activities, plus a renewed sense of hope andpurpose, to your classroom. Teams of elementary and middle-level teachers from many disciplines (ELA, art, social studies, and science) are encouraged to apply, but all educators who have an interest in the topic are welcome.

This workshop will be held at the IU School of Education from 9 am to 3 pm with breakfast starting at 8:30.

Participating teachers will be provided with hands-on materials and resources, $150 stipends, breakfast and lunch, and follow-up support. Parking is available in the Eagleson This workshop is generously funded by two anonymous foundations and the support of the IU Center for Rural Engagement.
