This webinar offers an introduction to the many applications of schoolyard gardens and green spaces as teaching tools for connecting environmental education and STEM learning. Presenters will cover some of the many different types of gardens or other spaces that can be used as outdoor classrooms and the related STEM tie-ins they offer. From engineering a garden bed or rainwater system, to the biology of plant life or pollinators, to the math used to calculate growing cycles and planting times, the lesson options are endless.

Hear Nathaniel Wight, a science teacher in New York City, share his experience with a green roof project and his plans for what he has in mind next. Then an educator from Anne Arundel County Public Schools in Maryland will talk about how to infuse stormwater education into an entire school system’s curriculum. And finally, hear from Nature Works Everywhere about some of the premier resources available for helping you start and get the most out of your own schoolyard STEM garden.
