FireWorks Educator Workshops are typically offered each year at the Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory to teach educators, community leaders, and agency communicators how to use the FireWorks curricula and trunks of materials. Workshops are two full days, and participants can earn university credit through the University of Montana, or Montana OPI credit.
Participants learn hands-on activities for teaching about wildland fire science
Activities cover combustion, fire spread, fire history, management, and fire effects on plants and animals
Supplemented by activities on fire use by Native Americans
