The Concord Consortium, the Stroud Water Research Center, the Central Valley Science Project and SAM Academy are pleased to announce the Teaching Environmental Sustainability-Model My Watershed (TES-MMW) workshop, a project funded by the National Science Foundation.  Participants and their students will use free portal-based activities that employ maps and models to study their own school’s watershed; teachers will participate in two summer face-to-face workshops and two online courses.  TES-MMW activities support NGSS and Math Common Core.  Teachers will receive a stipend for participating.
