Connecting Montgomery County to the Chesapeake Bay

Start Date:
Monday, June 25, 2018
End Date:
Friday, June 29, 2018

Specific to middle and high school educators in Montgomery County.

Learn about your local ecosystems and how to use them as valuable teaching tools! This course will tackle human land use effects on the health of our waterways, and how to bring these concepts into the classroom with a chemistry lens. The ways in which we use and protect the land can change the chemistry of our soil and water in ways that can be catastrophic, benign, or beneficial to environmental health. We can use properties of water and the chemical effects of water on Earth’s materials to measure and study environmental health, and innovate solutions to long-term problems. Join us to explore some of these problems and solutions in schoolyard habitats, on your local waterways, in your neighborhoods and communities, and in the Chesapeake Bay. You will acquire resources, new lessons, and techniques to develop environmentally literate students who are excited to learn Chemistry outside.

Length & Location: 5 local investigation days.
Cost: Refundable $50 registration fee.
