Elementary STEM program
Your support will allow us to deliver informal, STEM-based environmental education (Ecosystems Goal) to local schools while our Mary E. Fritsch Nature Center undergoes an assessment and possible reconstruction after the detection of mold. The Natural Science Road Show is a series of 6 multi-component discovery programs: Birds, Physical Forest, Insects, Sensational Seeds, Tracks, and Cooking with the Sun. Each program has three components: a physical exhibit, in-school field trip workshop, and professional development course. Each component has Stem-based curriculum materials, derived from our organizational focus areas of Ecosystems, Energy, and Food Systems, for professional development courses and fields trip workshops that have been approved by the Kentucky Department of Education to comply with NGSS and Common Core Standards.
