Asmbro Institute for Science- Stepping Out
This project's goal is to enhance Environmental Education (EE) Teaching Skills by increasing middle school teacher's abilities to use their schoolyard to teach about local environmental issues, ultimately increasing their student's understanding of and interest in environmental science. Approximately 1,200 will work with their teachers and Asombro scientific staff, students will collect and analyze data from their schoolyards that focus on the region's two most pressing environmental issues air quality reduction through wind erosion and climate change impacts. Students will then sue their new knowledge and critical thinking skills to design and implement their own stewardship action plan to help improve their environment. The project will contribute to career development by helping students remove common stereotypes about scientists and thereby empowering the students to consider environmental careers. The uniqueness of the project is that it brings the scientists to the schoolyard versus attempting to compete for shrinking education funds by bringing the students to the Chihuahua Desert Park.
