MEEC and sponsor Mojave Desert & Mountain Recycling is pleased to be hosting a “Nike Re-Use-A-Shoe” teacher workshop in the Morongo Basin. This fascinating 2-hour workshop explores the life cycle of an athletic shoe from its construction to it’s rebirth as the surface of a tennis or basketball court, or playground safety surfacing!
Participants will learn how to bring important recycling concepts into their classrooms with a set of six lessons and pre-and post-assessment activities focusing on sustainability. Studying these concepts will allow your students to explore these perspectives and draw their own conclusions about the level of their participation in achieving these goals.
Each participant will receive a Shoe-Recycling Kit that includes end products from the recycled shoes, a video, and Teacher’s Guide. The standards-based curriculum will help students grades 4-12 become more scientifically literate and promotes responsible analysis of the world’s environmental challenges.
