In partnership with the Tsongas Industrial History Center, we will explore the intersections of environmental history, science, and engineering. Chad Montrie, Professor at UMass Lowell, will provide an overview to the study of environmental history, particularly as it relates to New England industry. Teachers will examine primary sources and participate in hands-on activities with Tsongas Center staff drawn from their "Industrial Watershed and "River as Classroom" programs.
Note: This workshop will be taking place off-site at the Tsongas Industrial History Center in Lowell, MA.
This program is open to all who work with K-12 students. Teachers can earn 22.5 PDPs or 1 graduate credit (for an additional fee).
