Upcoming Virtual EDDIE Workshop at AGU: Building Quantitative Literacy Through Science, Education, and Art

published Oct 28, 2021 12:05pm

Are you excited to support your students in developing skills for science and connecting with communities? Sign up for the Virtual EDDIE Workshop at the AGU meeting: Building Quantitative Literacy Through Science, Education, and Art! This workshop will be online-only, Wednesday, December 8, 2021 from 8am to 2pm CST.

In the first half of this workshop participants will engage with strategies for supporting scientific inquiry and quantitative reasoning developed by the Project EDDIE (Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry and Exploration) in teaching materials that engage students in openly available earth and environmental data sets. Materials feature topics such as climate change, urban planning, biodiversity, and water pollution that all offer the opportunity to build creative reasoning skills.  In the second half, a panel of artists will share strategies for connecting societally relevant science to culture, community, or the advancement of justice.  Participants will develop and share ideas for how they will add inquiry and creativity to their courses to prepare their students as scientists and change advocates! This workshop should be of interest to researchers, educators, and advocates seeking strategies to build student interest in both research and the translation of science.
