Environmental Health Investigators Professional Development

Environmental Health Investigators Professional Development Workshop for Middle School Teachers – STIPENDS!

Engage your students in relevant, data-rich investigations about environmental health issues in their community! Scientists and educators from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) are presenting a two-day (3 hours per day) online workshop where you will develop your understanding of environmental health sciences, learn how to guide your students in the use of high-tech sensors for environmental monitoring, and explore Environmental PhotoVoice—a high-interest curriculum where students use their own photographs and narratives to express their concerns about environmental health issues in their community. In the fall, you will attend four virtual check-in meetings (one hour each) with our program instructors, providing further opportunities for networking, idea sharing, and support.

This workshop is limited to 20 participants and offered at no cost thanks to support from the National Institutes of Health. Check here to register!
