OUTDOOR/ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

 
General Information
Description of ServiceUses a multidisciplinary approach to study nature. Our mission is to inspire a child’s sense of wonder for the natural world and enhance classroom concepts through discovery-based learning. By employing direct observation and hands-on learning experiences both in and out of the classroom, the OEEP supports and enhances existing school curricula. The OEEP also fosters the sustainable use and preservation of the natural environment by laying the foundation for responsible action and helps districts by: providing engaging lessons and activities that directly support the NYS P-12 Science Learning Standards and STEAM education; integrating language arts, math, social studies, science and the arts into environmental concepts; facilitating exciting, interactive experiences with nature for students; utilizing natural resources where students can observe, hypothesize, experiment, collect, analyze and interpret data, and draw conclusions; providing teachers with in-service training, curriculum development, and ongoing instructional support. The Outdoor Environmental Education Program is provided in cooperation with SCOPE Education Services. Call for more detailed information.
