This is an in-person workshop at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.  Registration will close on July 24, or when full.

What’s right outside the door? How can we use that to engage student curiosity, gather data, and connect to your surroundings? Join us to explore these questions and more.

Come join us on a walking field trip in Golden Gate Park and experience strategies and routines for learning just outside the classroom door. Even brief excursions outside can support your students in their authentic curiosity, ownership of learning, and their socioemotional well-being. No matter your environment–whether urban, built, natural, or in between–find opportunities to connect to your community while critically examining your environment. After a morning outside engaged in inquiry and place-based learning, we’ll have an optional afternoon session for supported planning and collaboration time.

This workshop is designed for teachers who work with grades PK-12. All educators are welcome.
