Tuesday, July 11, 2023 - Wednesday, July 12, 2023
1:00pm - 2:00pm Mountain Lander, Wyoming
Sinks Canyon State Park
3079 Sinks Canyon Rd, Lander, 82520, WY
This overnight event starts at 1:00 pm on July 11 and continues until 2:00 pm on July 12.
Are you looking to incorporate the outdoors into your classroom or youth activities? Join us for a two-day camp in beautiful Sinks Canyon designed to give educators the tools to use natural resources to teach STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics) concepts.
This fun, hands-on workshop features the award-winning curricula of Project Learning Tree (PLT), Project WET, and Project WILD. It is a great opportunity to obtain training and manuals for these three outstanding educational programs in a single workshop. Each curriculum focuses on a specific resource area: forests (PLT), water (WET), and wildlife (WILD). The inquiry-based PLT and WILD curricula meet NGSS and STEM for science, social studies, and language arts. They are also cross-curricular and adaptable for grades K-12.
This training provides an experience with Sinks Canyon State Park as an outdoor classroom where educators can learn how to incorporate natural science concepts into their classrooms and programs. Participants are encouraged to stay and camp on the evening of July 11 but are welcome to arrange their own accommodations in town if they prefer.
Teachers, substitute teachers, non-formal educators, homeschoolers, youth group leaders, and anyone wanting to bring the environment into their classroom are welcome and encouraged to attend. For background information on the PLT and WILD programs see www.plt.org, www.projectwet.org, and www.projectwild.org.
Cost: $150 per person. Includes instruction, five curriculum guides, materials, a tent site, 1PTSB credit, and meals.
Register by July 3, 2023.
