The Northwest Aquatic and Marine Educators offer a virtual talk on “Engaging Youth in Environmental Justice” on Monday, Oct. 3, at 6:30 p.m.

In this talk, learn how Dr. Mindy Chappell leveraged chemistry curriculum in collaboration with the Youth Participatory Science Collective to study heavy-metal contamination as an issue of environmental justice. Acknowledging that environmental issues are context-based, the focus of this talk will rely on personal experiential reflection and non-prescriptive strategies to help teachers and students navigate some of the challenges they might encounter when exploring issues of environmental justice in science classrooms. This talk is meant to be an avenue of hope for educators’ who want to leverage their agency and curricular resources to teach science from a social justice or justice-centered science pedagogy.
