THE “WATERSHED TO THE REEF” PROJECT
Teacher Training – June 27th, 2015
As part of a working partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Southeast Florida Coral Reef Initiative (DEP SEFCRI) KEC is launching an extensive and in-depth educational all day teachers training workshop on June 27th, 2015 in Fort Lauderdale to support Broward County elementary school educators in creating great lesson plans for their students.
A variety of SEFCRI selected reference books, dvd’s and lesson plans along with coral reef replicas for hands on demonstration purposes will be used throughout the workshop. Those materials are similarly contained in a SEFCRI traveling educational trunk available to Public School teachers upon request at the workshop.
KEC is fortunate to have expert presenters. Lou Fisher, retired Broward County Marine Biologist with 35 years experience in diving and conducting coral reef research, Lindsey Nieratka, M.S. with degrees in biology, anthropology, and environmental studies with over 5 years of environmental education experience. Morgan Romero, American Heritage School intern and Master Research Diver assists.
