Teacher Professional Development: STEAM Marine Citizen Science

 Registration is closed for this event
Be trained by EcoCentre educators and ERM scientists in citizen science experiences.

This teacher professional development aims to connect women to their local environment, empowering them to deliver hands-on STEAM activities with a local marine theme to enable girls and women to take local action. 

ERM scholarships available to the first 20 female teachers who register!

You'll be trained in the following citizen science experiences: 

  • Little Penguin habitat restoration including sea grasses, propagation of nesting material, and sand re-nourishment on St Kilda Pier
  • Shoreline shell surveys to monitor changes in shell development relating to CO2 concentrations in Port Phillip Bay
  • Litter auditing and action planning

The first 7 female teachers to register and attend will receive a wildlife adventure sightseeing voucher thanks to Moonraker Dolphin Swims.

The EcoCentre is able to offer this PD for FREE through funding from ERM Consulting and their commitment to empowering females to deliver STEM curriculum and taking local action.
