Get ready for National Environmental Education Week 2016! This year, EE Week will take place April 17-23. Stay tuned for more details, registration information, and new Greening STEM resources coming soon!
Sponsored by Samsung, National Environmental Education Week (EE Week) is the nation's largest celebration of environmental education. It is held each spring around the time of Earth Day and inspires environmental learning and stewardship among K-12 students. In 2015, EE Week looked at how science can help us better understand the natural world with the theme Surrounded by Science. This year, we continue our focus on Greening STEM with the theme, Greening STEM: Rooted in Math.
Since its inception in 2005, EE Week has reached hundreds of thousands of students and educators across the United States with non-biased, high-quality, environmental education materials grounded in accurate, timely scientific information and tied to local, state and national learning standards.
EE Week works to celebrate all of the educators who are making a difference in the world of environmental education and STEM learning and provide them with the tools and resources they need to continue inspiring the next generation of lifelong environmental learners. Collected here are resources and offerings from EE Week, including highlights from recent EE Week projects, educator toolkits, promotional materials, registration information and more. Stay tuned for registration information coming soon to receive updates and to take full advantage of the benefits of EE Week, including access to upcoming professional development opportunities, advance notice of Greening STEM toolkits and resources, partner deals and discounts, exciting contest eligibility and more!
