In this interdisciplinary workshop for public school teachers, Brooklyn Historical Society, BLDG 92, and Solar1 will share resources for using sustainability as a lens to teach STEM topics.

Made-for-you Workshops for Teachers

The Education Department at BHS works with your curriculum and interests to create invigorating and rigorous workshops onsite or at BHS or BLDG 92. We'll work with you to connect new history scholarship and our unique local collection; and make sure participants leave with curricula they can use the next day in class as sell as a deeper content knowledge base. Recent topics include 19th Century anti-slavery activism, mixed heritage and the notion of "post racialism," the Dutch colonial era Brooklyn, letter-writing during the Civil War, and sustainable building and design at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
