They are designed to improve educator’s own environmental literacy and demonstrate how to use our outdoor environment as a real world learning laboratory to teach new concepts across multiple academic disciplines and introduce students to career pathways. Teachers will develop a project-based learning curriculum in their own subject area for use in their own classroom or teaching space.
