Teachers getting their hands dirty with the Science of Sustainability

Happy new decade from the EcoCenter!

Teachers from Bayview to the larger Bay Area gathered at the EcoCenter in the 2010 fall semester for the year-round professional development series, the Science of Sustainability. LEJ collaborated with the Exploratorium's Teacher Institute to develop curriculum on sustainability topics inspired by the EcoCenter. The three themes in the fall were water, energy, and planting. Check out the pictures of teachers getting elbows and knees deep in hands-on activities.

If you're a grade 6-12 teacher (especially in SF public schools), check out our spring workshops on sustainable plant adaptations, food justice, and astronomy. Here are the descriptions and registration info of the remaining Science of Sustainability workshops. Email Tracy at if you have any questions.
