The Growing Great Minds collaborative (ERC, Sawtooth Botanical Garden, SNRA, and Blaine County 4-H) is offering a Project Learning Tree workshop entitled STEAM in the Forest. This workshop will take place October 27 from 4:30-8:00 PM and October 28 from 8:30AM-4:00PM.

During the workshop, you will investigate Idaho’s trees, forests and forest products in a STEAM context – Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math. You will participate in hands-on inquiry activities from Project Learning Tree and other programs, indoors and out; identify and measure trees; make your own paper and test paper qualities. You’ll leave eager and equipped with abundant resources to explore these topics and activities with your students. Plus, you’ll enjoy a beautiful fall weekend with your colleagues!

It’s perfect for classroom teachers, non-formal educators, interested parents and other adults who work with children, too!

All PLT workshops have great activities that help educators accomplish curricular goals in meaningful ways, and are offered for professional education credit (for re-certification). There is no prerequisite for these workshops, but PLT highly recommends taking the General PLT workshop early in your PLT “career.” You’ll want to take them all!

Cost is $40 per person. Pre-registration is required. Register now!

We hope to see you there!
