About the Event
The Water Supply Forum has taken the lead on proactively evaluating the region's existing water infrastructure resiliency and planning for potential catastrophic disruptions such as an earthquake. Participants apply systems thinking to explore local planning documents, graphs, tables, and maps as “Living Textbook” resources for supporting standards in context of real-world problem-solving.
Teacher Learning Goals
1. Demonstrate an understanding of how students can meet NGSS, STEM, Social Studies, or Common Core Standards in context of analyzing water utility resiliency plans based on earthquake scenarios in our region.
2. Design, adopt or refine one or more lesson ideas using the content and instructional strategies provided.
3. Apply STEM literacy across disciplines and promote college/career pathways that expand students’ thinking about the growing green jobs sector.
