  • Integrating STEM and Environmental Education | Wildwoods Foundation
    to have said Give me a lever and I will move the earth At its core this statement illustrates principles of math geometry physics and engineering and arguably philosophy What does it take to teach this A stick and a couple of rocks Years ago I attended a conference where Last Child in the Woods author Richard Louv asked the room how many of us as a children had tried to dam a creek When most of the hands in the room shot up he responded and I paraphrase That experience taught you more about physics than an entire week in a classroom I believe that it is just such experiences that form the foundations of students understanding about science and engineering whether it s controlling the flow of water information or electrons That s why one of the most important aspects of your program should be hands on learning experiences Even games as opposed to scientific experiments or data collection that illustrate scientific principles give students the opportunity to develop a kinetic understanding of that principle e g the Deadly Links game from Project Wild illustrating the principle of bio accumulation as well as the principle of nested systems 3 ANALOGY METAPHOR Everyone knows the real estate mantra of location location location In the world of environmental education I believe the mantra should be relevance relevance relevance Since we particularly in the Southern California region are working with increasingly urbanized and nature deprived students it is important to find ways to illustrate principles in nature by using a frame of reference that is within their scope of understanding My all time favorite example was the method that one of our instructors came up with to successfully explain the function of a tree s xylem and phloem comparing it to the plumbing in an apartment building The kids got it right away Metaphors are your best friends Find some and use them 4 DISCOVERY One of the joys of speaking with groups of outdoor educators is that it s a pretty safe bet that everyone here experienced a pivotal moment in our life that contributed to who we are and why we do what we do that happened to us outdoors We understand the importance of that moment And while we all put countless hours into developing vital program activities that take advantage of what limited time we have with students sometimes our most important job is to just get out of the way and allow students to have their own moment and begin to develop their own personal relationship with nature Thus part of our program planning should at least try to include some unstructured time for individual exploration During my presentation I referenced the systems thinking work of Fritjof Capra founding director of the Center for Ecoliteracy based in Berkeley CA I strongly encourage all educators to introduce themselves to the resources available through the Center and to explore the systems thinking perspective which serves as a framework
