The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) provides an extensive Green STEM Guidebook, full of inspiration, information, and lesson plans to inspire teachers to join NWF’s Eco-Schools USA and Schoolyards Habitats Pathways programs. This freely downloadable guidebook shows how the programs provide a clear pathway to excite, motivate, and educate the next generation of experts, innovators, and math and technology whizzes. The guidebook also highlights, with detailed case studies, how students can put their STEM skills to work solving real-world environmental issues right in their own communities. With lessons on solar-powered rescue hovercrafts, hydroponic agriculture, energy, conservation, and schoolwide sustainability, teachers can demonstrate how learning STEM skills can be fun, not just on Earth Day (April 22, 2019) but throughout the year.
