In 2012, National Environmental Education Week (EE Week) will be celebrated from April 15-21. The events are kicking off early this year, and this Wednesday, March 28th at 7:00 PM you can join in by participating in a free webinar about “Field Investigations and STEM.”
For this webinar, EE Week will be partnering with the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies (AFWA) and the Pacific Education Institute (PEI) to explore how the schoolyard or local public land can provide students with the opportunity to be scientists using the skills and knowledge of inquiry to collect real-world data. During the webinar Margaret Tudor and Pat Otto from PEI will provide teachers with information and tools to engage students in STEM learning outside, utilizing nature as a laboratory, by planning, conducting, and evaluating a field investigation.
Webinar participation information will be sent to EE Week 2012 registrants via email. Registration is free and easy and connects you to a national network of educators dedicated to increasing the environmental knowledge of K-12 students.
