FREE Online Activity "After School" Workshops

This October

After two successful online summer workshop sessions,* Spring Forward is excited to launch our of free online climate "after school" workshops coming up this October! Each workshop includes a fun game relating to the subject within climate change, information about the subject, and the core part of the lesson; an interactive, hands-on activity to learn first hand about climate change. The workshops will cover topics such as an introduction to climate change, sea level rise, climate justice, fast fashion, and finally an overview of climate change.

*all the October workshops will cover new material and use new activities -- we would love to see kids from the summer workshops continue investigating climate change at the October workshops

 

For more information look over our brochure.

DATES

Each workshop will be taught two times, once on a week day and once on a Saturday.

Workshops will be on every Tuesday and Thursday for 3 weeks AND every Saturday for 6 weeks

"It was fabulous. he was excited about it, engaged, interested and felt respected... This past week was [my son]'s first workshop and he was totally wow-ed. He can’t wait to go to the next one and this is from someone who truly despises all of the virtual learning. We aren’t much of a screen family but this was suggested to us by a friend and it’s really fabulous. You’ve all done a wonderful job and I’m really appreciative."
