    BSCS Science Learning seeks teacher collaborators for a research project funded by the National Science Foundation. The Climate Education Pathways project is a collaboration between BSCS Science Learning, Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Our project aims to enhance teaching and learning of climate change for high school science and we are recruiting high school biology, earth science, and environmental science teachers to take part in our project. Teacher-collaborators will field test a 6-8 week digital high school science unit about climate and biology developed for the NGSS. Teachers will be supported in localizing the unit for their students and community. Teachers who are a part of the field test have the opportunity to be paid up to $2,700 over the course of 1.5 years (January 2023-May 2024). For more information and to apply to secure your spot in the project, please visit

    The Springs Preserve SPRINGBOARD Virtual Learning Program has two, new, exciting products for the classroom – flyer attached. These products are for 4th – 12th  grades.


    1. A new video focused on drought in Southern Nevada - Drought: Our Water Resources and Community Response. The video covers the issue of drought specific to our region. The SPRINGBOARD program also includes an opportunity to schedule an expert for a virtual classroom visit and supporting materials in teacher toolkits for grades 4-12. To schedule an expert and/or request access to our Teacher Tool Kits, click here. Expert availability is limited.


    It's important to note that students must watch the video, review vocabulary words and formulate thoughtful, topic-related questions prior to meeting with an expert. Our experts do not teach the subject matter, they provided an opportunity for students to ask questions and explore the topics further.


    1. Drought Activity Kit offered to teachers at no cost. The kits contain tools to engage students in an experiment with plants and water, including a gift card to purchase the plants needed for the activity.

    Teachers can request a kit here.
