FRESHKILLS PARK X TEACHER PD
Dedicated to using our local resources as much as possible, we visited Fresh Kills Park. The former Fresh Kills Landfill, the largest landfill in the world and now New York City’s largest public park built in more than a century, promotes environmental research and ecological restoration and sponsors a broad range of recreational, cultural, and educational programs for the public. We used our experience to prepare and present PDs to elementary school teachers to show that STEM/STEAM can be cross-curricular using whatever they are teaching.
