In this section, aimed for teachers and educators, are descriptions of our K-12, nonformal and public programs and curricula as well as links to science and environmental education resources.
Education programs increase the public understanding of and engagement with science and technology. Programs are geared to engaging youth in and out of school settings, as well as the general public, in daily encounters with their environment and to promoting environmental stewardship and place-based learning. The focus is primarily on STEM topics and water, climate change, and watersheds themes.
Collaborations with public agencies, schools, and community organizations, youth, teachers, educators, community members, agency personnel, artists, politicians, and many others make this work possible. University students play an active and enriching role in these endeavors with their contributions, leadership, and participation. They are active co-creators in designing, delivering, and evaluating education programs.
