Greenworks

Greenworks

Greenworks is a global environmental stewardship classroom we are developing to allow students from all over the world to learn and work together to solve urgent environmental challenges in their communities.  Students can participate via role-playing diplomacy games using international sister classroom setups.  They can also complete our project development curriculum, after which they implement and evaluate environmental stewardship projects.  Each learning experience lasts 4-6 weeks, during which we work to develop teacher skills for implementing these 21st century classrooms.

Science Voices is developing innovative public education events that blend together science, culture, active learning, and place-based learning.  We are currently working with the Etelman Observatory, and the Virgin Islands Children’s Museum to prototype astrotourism concepts and integrate astronomy education into various tourism-facing businesses in the US Virgin Islands.  We will be developing additional experimental projects in Brazil in 2023.

What is science education like around the world?  Well, we’ll have to talk to science educators from all over the world to find out.  In this half-hour podcast series, we chat with scientists, students, teachers, and informal educators to learn about the wild diversity of forms that science education can take and the remarkably diverse pathways science education careers have traveled.  In the first season, we talk with scientists teaching and working in a variety of US college settings, museums, extreme environments, tropical islands, and remote villages.
