Educator Workshops

The TecH2O Center is proud to host a series of teacher workshops during the year focused on water, ecosystems, wildlife and more. TecH2O will often partner with Region 19, UTEP, or Texas Parks and Wildlife in hosting workshops and covering materials costs. Workshops are free to participants and can satisfy Continuing Education Unit requirements.

We generally limit participation to 30 teachers, and we take teachers on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in being notified of future workshops, subscribe to our notification list here.
