Integrating Scientific Practices Through Service-Learning: Engaging Students in STEM

DATE April 20, 2012LEAVE A COMMENT

KIDS Consortium, a non-profit organization based in Maine, just released a new Guide: Integrating Scientific Practices Through Service-Learning: Engaging Students in STEM. The Guide is designed to help educators integrate service-learning into STEM content areas.  Examples in this Guide help illustrate how to plan and structure a STEM/service-learning project and how these projects benefit students, schools and communities.

Developed through a collaboration called “Youth as Citizen Scientists” with the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance and schools around the northeast, the Guide highlights the work of more than 1,000 middle-school students with their teachers and community partners to address environmental issues (such as waste reduction and energy efficiency) in their schools.  http://bit.ly/HiB6Af
