Environmental Education Week 2012 Green STEM Innovators
In celebration of the 2012 theme, Greening STEM: The Environment as Inspiration for 21st Century Learning, EE Week is highlighting five organizations from around the country that are connecting STEM to the environment in unique and creative ways.
School Spotlight: The SENSE IT instructional modules have proven very flexible used in both middle and high school classrooms, as well as after-school programs and in many disciplines, including pre-engineering, general science, algebra, physics, biology, chemistry and earth science. SENSE IT is being used in the 8th grade science classes at LaFargeville Central School in LaFargeville, NY and in the 9th grade Earth Science classes at Troy High School in Troy, NY.
Educators are invited to visit the project website for information about upcoming regional teacher professional development workshops and for information about the project and instructions for assembling the water quality sensors.
