    Science and Engineering Practices for Online Air Quality Education Webinar

    Educators of 5-12:  STIPEND, Curriculum Reviewer:  Information Webinar 12/6 & 12/7

    Organized by the A&WMA K12 Education Committee. This webinar will introduce Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) to middle and high school science teachers across the US and Canada and share an exciting paid opportunity with teachers to bring Air Quality into their science classrooms. The K12 Education Committee recently updated some of its Environmental Education Resource Guides (EERGs), starting with air quality. 

    • Tuesday, December 6, 2022 5:00 to 6:00 pm ET (2:00 to 3:00 pm PT)
    • Tuesday, December 6, 2022 8:00 to 9:00 pm ET (5:00 to 6:00 pm PT)
    • Wednesday, December 7, 2022 5:00 to 6:00 pm ET (2:00 to 3:00 pm PT)
    • Wednesday, December 7, 2022 8:00 to 9:00 pm ET (5:00 to 6:00 pm PT)

    We are using the webinar sessions to recruit middle and high school science teachers to pilot the AQ6-12 lesson in their classroom and provide the K12 Education Committee with feedback. Selected teachers may earn a $1,000.00 stipend during the Spring 2023 semester for completing all tasks. Teachers from public, charter, and private or independent schools who teach environmental science topics in their science classrooms are eligible to apply. We anticipate about 10 hours of work. Middle and high school science teachers in private, public, and charter schools are eligible to participate. We strongly encourage Title I middle and high school science teachers to submit an application as well as middle and high school science teachers from schools in areas chronically exposed to poor air quality. 

    The short term goal is to apply teacher feedback to improve the AQ6-12 lesson for national distribution. The long term goal is to provide students and their teachers with the fundamental concepts and skills to become aware of Air Quality issues and consider actions that protect clean air.
