Increasing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) knowledge and expanding STEM education and career opportunities for students is a national priority. Student achievement in STEM is key to fostering a new wave of innovators who can creatively address complex 21st century challenges. The environment is a compelling context for teaching STEM as it provides teachers with a diverse range of real-world challenges that engage students in meaningful hands-on opportunities to apply and reinforce STEM concepts across multiple subject areas. Recognizing the role of the environment as a portal for STEM learning, EE Week's 2014 theme is Greening STEM: Engineering a Sustainable World. Register today at http://www.eeweek.org/ to participate in Environmental Education Week, April 13-19, 2014.
For over 40 years, Earth Day—April 22—has inspired and mobilized individuals and organizations worldwide to demonstrate their commitment to environmental protection and sustainability.
