Weathering Climate Change Workshop for 3rd-8th Grade Educators

Weathering Climate Change workshop

Use the ocean, coast, and meaningful watershed education experiences to explore climate change with students in grades 3-8.  This fall, the Oregon Coast Education Program (OCEP) is offering professional development for inland teachers at two locations:


 Tryon Creek State Park
Saturday, November 7, 2015 9am – 12pm


High Desert Museum
Saturday, December 5, 20159am – 12pm

Through professional development workshops and online modules, the Oregon Coast Education Program helps educators teach about our state’s watersheds, coasts and the ocean. This fall, OCEP travels inland to share lessons and best practices from its newest education module focused on climate change. We’ll share age-appropriate classroom and field activities that engage students in citizen science projects and align with Next Generation Science Standards.  Download a flyer

Participating teachers will receive a $50 stipend plus materials. Space is limited, so register early for the workshop closest to you.

This workshop is supported by the NOAA Bay Watershed Education and Training program. For more information about the Oregon Coast Education Program, visit the Northwest Aquatic and Marine Educators (NAME) website or contact
