Jessica with WeAreTeachers again. Still looking for a featured classroom for the amazing Nature Conservancy virtual field trip! Your class will virtually journey to both the Mojave Desert and Palmyra Atoll, a wildly remote cluster of islands atop coral reefs and teeming with animal life.
Who wants to be the lucky class? We need to book a class ASAP! It's such an amazing opportunity.
Topic: Sun, Wind, Water, Heat - The Power of Renewable Energy. Take a Trip to Remote Islands in the Pacific and to the Scorching Mojave Desert
Best for: 5th or 6th Grade
Hard date & time: May 20, 2016 at 1 pm (ET). 40 minutes.
Expanded info: Join The Nature Conservancy scientist Alex Wegmann as we embark on a Virtual Field Trip to explore a compelling question: How can we get the energy we need without harming nature? By harnessing renewable sources of energy, such as sunlight and wind, scientists are finding ways to do just that.
On this journey, we’ll visit the Palmyra Atoll, a wildly remote cluster of islands atop coral reefs and teeming with animal life. Scientists there have developed ways to power the entire island almost exclusively through renewable energy sources.
We’ll also journey to the scorching Mojave Desert, home to rattlesnakes, tortoises, bats, and coyotes, to check out massive solar panel installations that are working to power large cities. We’ll learn about innovative methods for capturing energy that are safe, sustainable, and can change the destiny of life on our planet.
Although this free Google Hangout field trip is available to all, we would love to have a featured class on the air via your classroom or library webcam!
