About National Environmental Education Week
Hosted by NEEF, the National Environmental Education Foundation, EE Week is the nation's largest celebration of environmental education held each year the week before Earth Day and inspires environmental learning and stewardship among K-12 students. The 2013 theme, Greening STEM: Taking Technology Outdoors, explored how technology can enhance environmental learning both inside and outside the classroom. Part of our series on Greening STEM. Mark your calendars for EE Week 2014 -- April 13-19.
