Greening STEM Learning Center

Welcome to NEEF’s Greening STEM Learning Center. Our learning center provides a portal for formal and informal educators, parents, and others to connect with resources and tools vital in engaging learners of all ages in environmental education.

Developments in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) are growing faster than ever and the need to find engaging ways to teach lessons in these subjects grounded in real-world experience is clear. Our natural environment is a ready-made classroom for teaching STEM.  Greening STEM brings environmental topics and discussions into STEM lessons to frame subject matter in the context of real-life environmental examples.
