Let us help you bring green concepts to your school for student achievement, stewardship, and fun! Brought to you by GreenPower and led by our partner in education, Sierra Nevada Journeys, this two-day workshop helps bring GreenPower to schools in northeastern Nevada.

Worth .5 CEU, this FREE workshop will explore multidisciplinary lessons and investigations that promote “green” concepts surrounding energy, natural resources, and the use of the environment for teachable moments. We’ll participate in activities that pose the questions, “How Long Does that Trash Last?” “What is Your Footprint?” “Do Vampires Live in Your School?” and “How Big is That Tree?”

We’ll also explore connections to the Common Core State Standards, the Next Generation Science Standards, and STEM. This will be a fun, action-packed two-day workshop for all K-12 educators.
