Get Climate Ready!

On Wednesday, May 16th from 3:45 - 6:00 pm, teachers in grades 4 - 12 are invited to participate in an exciting, interactive professional development opportunity on climate change being held at the Franklin Institute. 

  • Learn ways to help your school and community reduce climate impacts and adapt to a hotter and wetter Philadelphia.
  • Participants can apply for a mini-grant to support a climate change project of their own design. (Please note: mini-grants are currently only available for teachers in the School District of Philadelphia)
  • Conduct hands-on activities, explore lesson plans, learn how to calculate your school's carbon footprint, and learn ideas for student-driven climate adaptation and mitigation projects in the community.
  • Leave with free tools and resources you can use in your classroom. First 20 registrants will receive a free Kill-A-Watt device to measure energy use in their classrooms.
  • Participants will learn about National Wildlife Federation’s Eco-Schools USA program in a session tailored to the CUSP(Climate and Urban Systems Partnership) model and the School District of Philadelphia’s GreenFutures plan.
  • Network with your peers and get inspired by scientists from the Franklin Institute.
