Greening STEM Educator Toolkit

The environment is a compelling context for teaching STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) as it provides teachers with a diverse range of real-world challenges that engage students in hands-on opportunities to apply and reinforce STEM concepts across multiple subject areas. From calculating planting area and productivity in the school garden, to designing model wind turbines, to tracking invasive species with GPS technology, environmental projects inspire students to apply STEM by empowering them to develop innovative solutions to local problems meaningful to them.

Use the educator toolkit below to find free lesson plans, activities, and resources for teaching STEM using environmental education.
