GPB Phenomenal Science Fun Training
Phenomenal Science Fun is a powerful morning of learning, sharing, and connecting around the new Georgia Standards of Excellence for Science.
For this event, you will be provided with opportunities to connect with local educational resources, led by Georgia Public Broadcasting and Discovery Education, that will help you to bring the new standards to life in your classroom. Join fellow area educators in a roundtable format to brainstorm ideas and walk away with ready to implement lessons and strategies that you can use right away in your own classroom...think "science resource speed dating"!
We'll review the updates and allow you to spend time learning, sharing, and connecting with each of our educational partners in grade level groups.

Elementary and middle school teachers can apply now through December 31st for a Project Learning Garden Grant. The Captain Planet Foundation Project Learning Garden Program encourages educators to consider the school garden as an extension of the traditional classroom rather than an extracurricular activity. All Project Learning Garden lessons are tied to common core curriculum standards, encourage inquiry-based learning, provide hands-on experiential learning, and guide the teacher towards the next generation science standards. Each lesson also provides an environmental stewardship learning opportunity. Grantees will receive a Project Learning Garden™ provided by Captain Planet Foundation, including: 5 garden beds or garden enhancement (for schools with an existing garden), a mobile garden cooking cart, standards-based Learning Garden lessons and lesson supply kits, and teacher training.
