IMPORTANT 2018 eesmarts Workshops Updates

The eesmarts team wants to keep our professional development workshops engaging and interactive while making them available to all Connecticut educators. Please note these changes that will allow us run sustainable workshops which build capacity for Connecticut education agencies.  

  • Electronic Curriculum and Workshop Materials.  All program materials will be distributed electronically at each workshop.
  • Please bring an electronic device.  To access the curriculum, Powerpoint, and other workshop materials, please bring a device with internet connectivity.
  • Please bring your own lunch.  

Workshops are interactive and cross disciplinary, featuring inquiry-based, hands-on activities.  Workshop agenda items include:

  • Learn that turning natural resources into processed materials and products requires energy.
  • Read about the negative impacts humans can have on the environment.
  • Identify natural resources used to produce common items that become  waste.
  • Understand that recycling uses less energy and fewer natural resources than making something from new.
  • Understand that reducing and reusing are better for the environment than throwing things away.
  • Learn how to make less waste.
  • Recognize source reduction as an effective means of controlling solid waste.
  • Learn the steps involved in recycling.
