Due to a staff illness, we need to postpone the job-embedded opportunity originally scheduled for Tuesday, May 14.
 
However, there's good news! We're working to secure a new date. 

 

While you wait for the rescheduled event, check out our "Travel4Climate" resources. This section explores the science behind climate change and its impact on transportation.

Leverage climate education into student engagement during this limited-time job-embedded opportunity. 

During Wheels for Change: Transportation’s Role in Climate, a Let’s Talk Science facilitator will guide you and your class in a lesson focusing on brainstorming and reflection strategies that help students make sense of transportation’s impact on the environment. 

At the same time, educators will learn easy-to-implement strategies, insights, and inspiration for implementing collaboration within the classroom.

This session will be 45 minutes long. If you can't attend live, a recording is available in the supporting course within 72 hours. You must register to access the course. This experience is linked to the Travel4Climate action project
