Wild Rose Education’s Youth Water Leadership Program is excited to partner with and host the Lens on Climate Change Program in Carbondale June 11-16th from 9am-4pm each day at the Third Street Center in Carbondale, Colorado. Program limited to 30 middle and high school students. Sign up now!
The Lens on Climate Change (LOCC) project engages middle and high school students in film production documenting the effects of climatic and environmental changes on their lives and in their communities. Middle and high school students are paired with science and film graduate to research, film, edit, and screen their film. The collaboration with mentors in both science and technical career paths provides a chance to learn about STEM fields and careers. This project is part of an NSF-funded research program that aims to study how filmmaking increases student learning and engagement with science and technology.
It was an honor to facilitate and participate in a panel discussion of four influential watershed education leaders from across Colorado on March 2, 2018 during the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education's annual Advancing EE conference in Denver.
Inspiring Educators in Place: Watershed Workshops
The forum highlighted four successful place-based water education programs across the state including Forest to Faucets, Western Rivers Teacher Workshops, and River Watch. Many effective strategies and practices for developing, or strengthening, place-based EE workshops were shared by Sarah Johnson - Wild Rose Education; Kay Phelps - Fort Lewis College; Natalie Brower- Kirton - City of Aurora; Barb Horn - Colorado Parks and Wildlife - River Watch
