Educators are important members of the Bow Seat crew, whether you teach in classrooms, in homes, or in out-of-school programs. We respect the incredible work you do to inspire, educate, and engage students in environmental activism and the arts. We could not do what we do without your involvement and support!
Our participating teachers come from all disciplines and often collaborate with colleagues to create cross-disciplinary connections, combining Math + Art, History + Creative Writing, Chemistry + English, Environmental Science + Technology, and more. To help you best leverage Bow Seat’s Ocean Awareness Contest, we have complied Classroom Resources such as lesson plans on climate change and suggested reading on integrating science and art education.
“The Ocean Awareness Contest offers a fabulous way to enable students to practice the transferable skills of communication, research, and design while doing something real to help the planet. I think it could be integrated into almost any subject area.”
