HGCI 2019: STEAM Connections to Climate Change, Wildfire, and Community Resilience Workshop Application Form
This two-day workshop on February 23 and March 2, 2019 will expose teachers to real-world and timely issues of climate change, wildfire, and community resilience that can readily become authentic learning experiences for students. Public, charter, and private school teachers of grades 4-12 students from O’ahu are encouraged to attend to gain first-hand knowledge from community experts and participate in place-based hands-on experiences in the ahupua'a of Honouliuli that will connect teaching to local and global issues. Participants will see how education can seamlessly incorporate STEAM, HA (Nā Hopena A’o), and NGSS.

Funding from grants make it possible to offer this workshop at a low fee of $40, which includes lunch, refreshments, and take-home resources. Also as a bonus, Leeward O’ahu teachers (from ‘Ewa to Wai’anae) who complete both sessions and develop a plan to implement STEAM lessons based on this workshop are eligible to receive $250-$500 toward project implementation. A simple proposal will be required.

Seats in the class will be filled as applications are accepted, therefore early submissions are encouraged. Applications are due by February 8, 2019. The program fee will be due to Mālama Learning Center after one is accepted and is non-refundable. Leeward O'ahu teachers will be given preference to align with the objectives of grants from Kamehameha Schools Wai‘anae and 'Ewa Regions and Marisla Fund of the Hawai'i Community Foundation that are subsidizing most costs. Teachers from other districts are welcome based on space availability.

This is a non-credit professional development workshop and no portfolio is required. This experience may support teachers’ license renewal (Hawai’i Teacher Performance Standard #5). Upon request, Mālama Learning Center will provide documentation to show evidence of participation.

This workshop is coordinated by the Mālama Learning Center, a non-profit environmental education organization based in Kapolei, as part of its Hawai’i Green Collar Institute (HGCI) that has been running since 2010.
