Jonathan Frederick, the director of the North Carolina Science Festival, will share what he learned as his organization cancelled one of the largest celebrations of STEM in the country and pivoted to a more virtual presence. What went well? What lessons were learned?
The term “virtual” means a lot of things to different people. Not all virtual experiences need to be live. Not all virtual activities that are teed up online need to happen in front of a screen. Join us for a conversation around how far can we bend what virtual means to find new ways to engage audiences, find new audiences, and to develop better, more inclusive practices during a global pandemic.

About the EENC Webinar SeriesThanks to our amazing donors this spring, EENC is launching a webinar series to help environmental educators continue to build skills as we all negotiate the new normal with COVID-19. Throughout the series, we hope to cover a wide range of topics. Webinars may focus on lesson plans, curricula development, technology and virtual learning, naturalist skills/knowledge, educator self-care or environmental education operations such as communications, strategic planning for your program/department, risk management, or equity and inclusion.
Webinar registration is free and open to anyone to attend, but is limited to 100 participants.
Webinar will qualify for Criteria III and continuing education for NC DEQ EE Certificate.
A recording of the webinar will be sent to attendees afterward. It will also be posted on EENC's members-only page - so if you're an EENC member and not able to attend during the scheduled time, no need to register!
