The Teachers Night Out series brings all kinds of educators together for fun afternoons of learning exciting hands-on ways to teach children about science and nature. Everyone is invited! Classroom teachers, outdoor educators, scout leaders, homeschool parents – anyone who wants to be a better educator.
Join us as we walk through the Center, after hours, to discover some fun ways you and your students can learn about geology! Living in Southern California means having to acquaint ourselves with earthquakes. But geologists don’t just study plate tectonics – they study water, erosion, and even chemistry. Join us for a hands-on workshop to learn why exactly rocks rock! This event is targeted toward middle and high school educators, but everyone is invited!
This month’s guest speaker, Adam Hutchinson, is the Recharge Planning Manager for the Orange County Water District in southern California. He has over 30 years water resources experience. In his 20 years at the District, he has worked as Director of Recharge Operations and as Senior Hydrogeologist. He has an undergraduate degree in Geology, a master’s degree in Hydrology from the University of Arizona. He is a Professional Geologist (PG) and Certified Hydrogeologist (CHG) in the state of California.
Afterwards we’ll enjoy a meal of BBQ turkey burgers together and share some wine by the campfire before breaking out the marshmallows and skewers to make some s’mores!
