Training for Kindergarten through Fifth Grade Educators in Reno

DRI is pleased to announce its “STEM Showcase for Educators: Back to School Blowout.”  The event includes training on DRI’s new Green Boxes, which are Next Generation Science Standards and Amplify standards aligned, free classroom supplies, raffle prizes, swag bags, and a resource fair with local businesses and non-profit organizations.

Green Boxes are self-contained teaching kits that provide educators with two or more weeks of lesson plans along with all of the supplies necessary to conduct each activity. Every box uses active learning strategies to engage students in hands-on projects that foster critical thinking and problem-solving skills. These lessons are designed to enhance student literacy in various STEM subject areas, from water conservation in the Desert Southwest to the environmental impact associated with natural resource extraction. Best of all, this resource is offered FREE of cost to any formal or informal educator in Nevada!

This event is a collaboration between DRI’s Science Alive, UNLV, and the National Institute for the Advancement of Education. Register Today!
