Planting SEEDS: Systems-level Environmental Education through Demonstrations in Sustainability

119 and 121 Chambers Building
University Park, PA
December 1, 2016 @ 9:00am - 2:30pm

This workshop will help teachers instill an excitement for environmental education in their students by sharing cutting-edge research, working solutions, and classroom experiments that promote systems-level thinking in sustainability. After delving into an interactive discussion on the Grand Challenges for Engineering in the 21st Century, teachers will go on guided tours of several examples of sustainable systems in operation at Penn State, such as: the Eco-MachineTM; Living Filter; aquaponics greenhouse; composting facility; and a green roof. In the afternoon, teachers will learn how to conduct several hands-on experiments that they can take back to their classrooms to actively demonstrate sustainable solutions for growing nutritious food, generating green energy, and producing purified water.
