Educator's Round Table
The Next Round Table will be
August 21, 2015 from 4:30 - 5:30 pm
Q&A with guest aquaponic professionals.
Educators often tell us that they feel like they have to recreate the wheel to provide education on topics related to sustainability. Resources are available and many are listed further down this page. Finding the resources can be challenging, even for the most skilled internet search wizard. On the journey of sharing SchoolGrown's mission, we have met a growing list of inspiring pioneers paving a promising path for the next generation. Here at SchoolGrown, we wonder what would happen if these pioneers had a platform and space to meet each other and expand their network of influence.
SchoolGrown is hosting quarterly conference calls for curriculum creators, teachers, and professors to share their accomplishments and challenges. These calls are open to anyone interested in collaborating to create robust curriculum around sustainability and enhancing education with aquaponics. The outcome will depend on those that participate and the creation of shared goals.
