Interested in environmental education?
Thinking about what to do during Spring Break?
Want to work with amazing young people across the state of Washington?

Apply for Pipeline Project’s 2013 Environmental Alternative Spring Break (EASB) program!

The Pipeline Project is sending two teams of five students to two Washington state schools (Quileute Tribal School, La Push &
Brewster Elementary School, Brewster) during UW’s spring break from March 24th-March 29th to work on an environmental education
project. UW students will facilitate environmental science lessons with elementary and middle school students and learn about the
local ecology and environmental issues of the region. This project is a part of the larger Pipeline Alternative Spring Break Program
that facilitates literacy/arts projects across the state of Washington.

Environmental ASB members will enroll in a 2-credit EDUC 401 preparation seminar during Winter quarter 2012 (Thursdays from 4:30-5:50
pm) to plan, design and practice an inquiry-based, hands-on environmental science curriculum to be taught during spring break.
Students will also explore issues of rural and tribal education in addition to the field of environmental education. In addition,
students will tutor in a local environmental education program or K-8 classroom during the winter quarter for 2 – 2.5 hours/week.

Interested? Apply now! Applications due 5 pm on 11/16/12. Please visit our website for application instructions and materials:
