Education Workshops

Earthwatch educational workshops provide a unique and impactful learning experience.

Our workshops are designed to engage and educate participants of all ages, from students to adults. Through hands-on activities and interactive learning, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the impacts of climate change and the importance of preserving our natural resources.

Wetlands Workshop

Mangroves and tidal wetlands are critical ecosystems that support, protect and enhance the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. But they are under significant threat due to climate change, land clearing and other human impacts.

Teachers are invited to register for two-day training workshops which will be held in four locations, Cairns, Mackay, North Keppel and Gladstone to enable their school to become part of a critical research program to save these ecosystems.

Teachers will build skills in scientific design, data collection, and analysis and be equipped with the skills needed to build a wetland monitoring program with their students. Free educational resources will be available to assist with linking to science curriculum.

ClimateWatch Workshop

Climate change is the most pressing issue we face and the youth are voicing their concerns. Teachers can join one-day training workshops to help embed climate science into school learning and enable students to contribute to real world climate projects. The training includes background material on climate change and local ecosystems, biodiversity and how to identify species, data collection and interpretation, the use of the ClimateWatch app and website, and assistance to create an ongoing monitoring program with their students using the ClimateWatch program.

Dedicated education resources are provided, which contain lesson plans and links to the secondary math, science and geography curriculum.
