Salmon Survival Data Critical Solutions
[3 STEM Clock Hours] Interactive PBL practicum for secondary teachers. With the support of salmon biologists, we explore salmon survival data through graphs, videos, maps, and planning documents as an entry event for sophisticated problem-solving.
Time & Location
Feb 27, 2021, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
About the Event
If salmon are the indicator species for our watershed and their populations are declining, what does that mean for our own well-being? From indigenous perspectives, to land use planning, to climate science, we will build a table of student impact project ideas that integrate science, engineering, civics, economics, geographic literacy, ELA, and media arts. Biologists from both King County and Tacoma Water explain the methodology and implications of salmon survival data. Career pathways related to environmental science will be explored and the Lab features interaction with a team of highly capable students from the Sustainability Ambassadors Youth Leadership Program.
Teacher teams from across the curriculum are encouraged. You and your colleagues are invited to sign up for one, some, or all of the Labs in the Series.
This Focus Lab is part of the ongoing Green-Duwamish Watershed PBL Curriculum Design Lab Series with funding support from the King County Wastewater Treatment Division WaterWorks Grants Program, and the Puget Sound Stewardship & Mitigation Fund, a grantmaking fund created by the Puget Soundkeeper Alliance and administered by the Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment.
