Earth Day, Environmental Education Week, Titanic Anniversary
Environmental Education Week April 15–21
In recognition of the national priority placed on developing skills in science, mathematics, and related fields, the 2012 Environmental Education Week (EE Week) theme is Greening STEM: The Environment as Inspiration for 21st-Century Learning.
To support this year’s EE Week campaign, we have created a Geography Connections tool kit to help students explore Earth’s physical systems and human population dynamics. Additionally, our Schoolyard Bioblitz tool kit provides resources for developing project-based field research into local biodiversity.
We hope you find these materials useful for getting students excited about science and the environment—students are the innovators who will preserve our planet for future generations!
