From the White House, across the nation and back, learn directly from Green Schools and our National Green Schools Society Student Leaders how to develop the next generation of environmentally innovative students and schools through Best E-STEM (Environment + STEM) Practices, project based learning, leadership, and action. Green Schools has been invited to participate and strategize in Climate Literacy and E-STEM conversation with our nation's top thought leaders ranging from President Obama, Vice President Biden, U.S. Dept. of Education Secretary Duncan, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, and Dr. Greene with a common goal to create a healthier, more sustainable and innovative future for people and planet through solutions that work!

Additionally, the STEM-C Curriculum and Community Enterprise for New York Harbor Restoration in New York City Public schools consists of five district resource pillars that when combined in practice will foster direct collaboration between teachers and STEM-C professionals, innovative methods for teaching in schools, afterschool curriculum, and aquarium-based programming, Ultimately, it is expandable to restoration, environmental research, and sustainability projects in national/international communities, creating extremely broad impacts on mainstream science pedagogy. The program exclusively engages public schools in neighborhoods with persistent poverty and low socio-economic indicators. The model demonstrates that physically engaged, field-based, authentic scientific research can provide systematic inequities to equalize learning for student groups currently under-represented in the STEM-C professions. The partners' extensive pedagogical experience and existing literature indicate that STEM-C teaching and learning is greatly enhanced when students practice authentic science inquiry, field research, and socially beneficial conservation.
