The Preschool Education in Applied Sciences (PEAS) team will engage participating Head Start and NC Pre-K program staff (lead teachers, teacher assistants, center aides, center administrators, education specialist, health specialists) in an in-service training on October 23, 2023. Training will bring together Head Start staff, Farm to ECE staff, and other NC Cooperative Extension partners. The purpose of the workshop is to provide individuals with an introduction to the PEAS Program and prepare them for upcoming participation in the program in Spring 2024. Individuals will also be able to engage in hands-on PEAS activities. At training, teachers will receive a PEAS Science Teaching Toolkit to provide materials needed to support classroom science learning and a PEAS Teaching Guide to support teachers’ progress throughout the program.
