Environmental Education Week 2012

The environment, with its range of engaging, real-world challenges, gives teachers a chance to provide students with meaningful, hands-on experiences that reinforce STEM concepts across multiple subject areas. This year’s National Environmental Education Week, which falls on April 16 -21, 2012, reflects that concept in its theme–Greening STEM: The Environment as Inspiration for 21st Century Learning.

Events include free webinars for educators hosted by the Environmental Protection Agency. The series kicks off a new agency initiative called Environmental Education in Action (EE in Action), that will showcase environmental education programs and resources, including grant projects funded by the Office of Environmental Education.

  • Webinar #1: Environmental Education for Everyone: EPA’s ‘K through Grey’ Educational Resources. April 17, at 4:00pm EST.
  • Webinar #2: Creating the Link Between Emerging Urban and Existing Environmental Education Programs. April 18, 2012, at 4:00pm EST.
  • Webinar #3: Greening STEM: Environmental Resources and Tools for Inspiring 21st Century Learning. April 19, 2012, at 4:00pm EST.
