THIS IS A THREE DAY WORKSHOP, BUT IT IS FINE TO ATTEND WHEN YOU CAN. (If people miss a session, we will make sure they can catch up.)

Audience: Middle and High school teachers, any content area. Especially good for math or science. Perfect for multidisciplinary teams.

Min/Max: 5 - 30

Description: Crowd the Tap is a nationwide citizen science program aimed at promoting access to safe drinking water by supporting investigations of local drinking water delivery systems and of the quality of the water that comes out of the tap. In this series of sessions, teachers will explore the use of Crowd the Tap as the foundation for interdisciplinary learning that can continue whether students are working in a school or from home.

Over the three Zoom sessions, teachers will learn more about Crowd the Tap, work together to explore the kinds of data that students will collect, and discuss how to continue working together to implement the program this fall. Work will progress from session to session, but if you think this sounds interesting, joining for any session that fits your schedule is way more important than attending all the sessions. We will find ways to make sure everyone can follow and participate in the conversation.

The goal is to support a small community of teachers who work with Schoodic institute and each other to integrate Crowd the Tap into their curriculum this school year.
