The two-hour virtual professional development will help educators understand how aquatic ecosystems can be changed over time and how humans can depend on these ecosystems as a protein source. Through the experience, educators will tour a Long Island fish market, develop their teacher network, identify resources for their classrooms, gain an understanding of the concepts of ecosystem rehabilitation, and learn about food safety and industry standards while cooking along with a chef. The development will conclude with a STEM experience that can be applied and modified for all grades. Two hours of CTLE credits will be available.
