USGBC Indiana's Northwest Branch is hosting a teachers’ open house on November 9, where it will share tools to help teachers incorporate sustainability into their curriculums.

When: Thurs., November 9, 2017, 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Where: Recycled Granite, 1952 U.S. 41, Schererville, Indiana

Registration is $10 per person and includes wine, beer and appetizers. Please come and go at your leisure anytime between 4 and 8 p.m. Brief presentations will take place at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Join your fellow education professionals to learn about USGBC's Learning Lab, USGBC's online education platform for K–12 teachers and school leaders to find lessons, activities and resources that encourage student leadership, sustainability literacy and real-world action. Registered attendees will be entered into a raffle to receive a free subscription to Learning Lab.

Teachers will also receive materials for creating a Granite Pal, invented by Recycled Granite founder and executive director Julie Rizzo. Each Granite Pal is handmade, using 100 percent recycled granite, by individuals with special needs in the U.S. It is sold unassembled and comes with a lesson plan to teach recycling, geology and the creative arts.

“The U.S. Green Building Council of Northwest Indiana is pleased to help provide teachers with fun, innovative tools to help incorporate sustainable, green curriculum into their K–12 classrooms,” said Ryan Lisek, project manager for South Shore Clean Cities and board member of USGBC Indiana's Northwest Branch.

This event will provide one continuing education credit and will allow each teacher to gain a Professional Growth Plan Point. It is sponsored by Recycled Granite and Core Construction.

Space is limited, and registration is required.
