Lab-to-School Summer Institute
For K-12 Teachers
LEAP will engage New York City K-12 teachers through a Summer Institute on Climate Data Science, spearheaded by Teachers College’s Center for Sustainable Futures, which facilitates research on educational practices and translation of research into action through dissemination to educators, parents, and the public. The Summer Institute will be a five-day professional development workshop introducing teachers to climate data science for prototyping teaching units aligned with New York State science standards. All teaching units and related materials will be posted online and disseminated through a webinar series; these materials will each be translated into Spanish, broadening potential participation from historically underserved communities.
