Teachers’ School of Ecology – New Jersey, USA (2023)

In August 2023, BASF and the New Jersey Audubon (NJA) organized the first-ever Teachers’ School of Ecology (TSOE), a three-day workshop for middle and high school teachers to learn about how natural ecosystems are impacted by climate change. Participants were challenged to solve real problems through exploration, discovery and critical thinking. For example, they monitored water quality, assessed habitat and investigated environmental issues. The workshop topics were tailored to New Jersey’s Student Learning Standards, which would in turn make it easy for teachers to adopt the experiments and learnings into their own curricula.
