The project “Sea-Level Rise (SLR) in the Classroom” will provide educators tools and resources to connect the concepts of sea-level rise and flooding to community planning and resilience.
To introduce educators to the curriculum we are hosting a workshop at MSU Coastal Research & Extension Center in Biloxi on Thursday September 19, 2019. This full day interactive workshop introduces Mississippi science and social studies teachers to the new curriculum and will provide an opportunity to shape the curriculum and identify practical applications.
For educators participating in the workshop there is a $100 stipend and ability to earn 0.6 CEUs. Participants can also be a sponsored pilot-test classroom in Spring 2020 with an additional $800 stipend. Educators can register online at: http://SLRedMS.eventbrite.com.
