Earth Day Ahead: Greening STEM

We're 2 "sleeps" away from Earth Day, which be Monday, April 22nd.

We're also wrapping up EE Week (Environmental Education) week, which typically is the week prior to Earth Day (April 14--20 this year).   Below is a great infographic on this year's EE Week theme:  Greening STEM:  Taking Technology Outdoors.  Additionally, here are some interesting facts from their website.
  • 75% of 1,900 surveyed educators said students who spend regular time outdoors tend to be more creative & better problem-solvers. 
  • 77% of teachers believe using tech in the classroom increases student motivation to learn.
So whether math and and technological documentation are involved in measuring rainfall, school electricity usage, planting, or more, there are a lot of great tie ins with science.

Here are some of EE's "Greening Stem" resources:
