Teachers are often tasked with educating large groups of students on a limited budget. This can make it challenging to provide experiential education in the classroom. Our educators provide support for teachers in many ways, from chaperoning field trips to assisting with experiments, in order to give students a more interactive experience.
We are currently partnering with Fremont Middle School’s Natural Resources class where our educators provide extra support during garden project days. At Winston Middle School, students have the chance to perform experiments with extra teachers in the room to assist them in their studies. At several of our Science Wednesday partner schools, our educators have the chance to teach environmental concepts in class to students who aren’t signed up for the after-school program. Starting in 2019, students enrolled in Environmental Science at Roseburg High School will learn more about tree planting and cultivating a native pollinator garden with UW educators.
If you are interested in having our educators assist in a classroom, contact the Education Committee Chair, Ken Carloni.
