Worldwide Voyage PD for Educators

When: Saturday, April 2nd 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Where: NYU Steinhardt, Department of Teaching and Learning, East Building, 239 Greene Street, 4th Floor | New York, NY 

Hōkūleʻa is a Polynesian voyaging canoe that is more than halfway on her worldwide voyage, using Polynesian wayfinding – navigating only by stars and other natural elements, with the guiding value Mālama Honua (in English, care for Island Earth). Her mission is to help build a global movement for a sustainable future by learning and sharing the “stories of hope” of communities worldwide. Hōkūleʻa will be here in NY in early June!

This PD session will build on what has been previously presented and, as always, seeks to involve anyone in any educational setting, whether in school classrooms, after-school programs of any kind, scouting and other similar activities, whether on a continuous or periodic basis. The lessons learned from the worldwide voyage and the values that the crew members practice are valuable to all of us. The subject matter covers math and science, cultures, history, and the lessons from our ancestors – all unique to a multi-year expedition that is like no other ever!

For those of you for whom this may be the first experience, attend and you will catch up – no worries!

 

It would be helpful to us if you would RSVP here.
