Join us as we blast off to camp and learn how to incorporate Next Generation Science Standards into your classroom through the lens of energy and the environment. We will simulate a Mission to Mars and will need to identify basic life support systems in order to survive. This hands-on weekend workshop will explore the complexities of energy as it relates to NGSS.

Grizzly Creek Ranch is a residential camp owned and operated by Sierra Nevada Journeys. You will receive 2 nights shared accommodation in a heated bunk and all meals and snacks throughout the weekend are included. In addition, participants will receive 1 in-service credit through the Nevada Department of Education.

This weekend workshop is offered through a collaboration of DRI, Sierra Nevada Journeys, Washoe County School District, RPDP of Northern Nevada, Project Learning Tree, and EnergySmart Education (sponsored by NV Energy and SW Gas).
