Aishat and Vivian explore STEM in Atlanta through the eyes of teenagers by interviewing diverse professionals, speaking on their high school experiences, and sharing their passion for STEM.
Join the Environmental Education Alliance (EEA) of Georgia for their first-ever virtual Outdoor Learning Symposium!
Date/Time: Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020 from 9am-12:30pm
Theme: Outdoor Classrooms: The Natural Solution to Pandemic Teaching
Audience: K – 12 educators and administrators
Hosted by EEA’s Council of Outdoor Learning (CoOL), our goal is to support and inspire educators during this unprecedented school year. Learn new strategies for teaching K-12 students remotely and in-person! Each session will have an individual link to an online platform such as Zoom, Teams or Google Meets.
The full registration cost is $25 per participant. However, since many organizational/school budgets have been cut recently, we are extending free or reduced cost registration to all impacted teachers. Also, click on the link to become a FREE EEA member this year. What a deal!
Upon registration, you will receive the full program, which will include the presentation and resource links. All sessions will be recorded and available for viewing after the event to registered EEA members and participants.
