Staff PD: Getting creative with climate change

Thursday 23 February, 4 - 6.15pm. Armadale Primary School, Densham Road, Armadale

Creativity plays a vital role in informing, engaging and motivating young people about climate change.

In this workshop, you'll learn about how STEAM - putting the Arts into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths - will help you talk and teach about climate change. 

Staff from Armadale Primary School will also take us on a short 'walk and talk' showing the sustainability features of their school. 

Teacher attending this PD can register their PD hours with BOTES.
