The Environmental Rangers, an Environmental Protection Agency Environmental Quality Award-winning youth group, has expanded its scope to add STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) approaches to youth engagement with the wild.
The Eco-youth group’s STEM initiative is called SEER (Science, Education, Exploration & Research) to give focus to the program’s environmental heritage goals.
SEER will re-introduce youth to nature in a way that is fun, dynamic, educational and motivational.
It is important to us that SEERs themselves decide what they want to learn in the Eco-system so that we can provide them personalized knowledge and experience. To do this SEERs will be introduced to a wide array of environmental pursuits. They will join with other Eco-youth in action teams and assist each other in achieving set Eco-goals.
SEER interactions will occur in a wilderness setting with small group-sizes supervised by experienced and qualified environmental award-winners and leaders.
As a SEER your child will have the opportunity to:
♦ Create their own real-world research projects with public reporting to government, science agencies & civic organizations;
♦ Interact with thousands of species in the Mandahl Bay Beach, Salt Pond and Lagoon APC & Area for Preservation and Restoration; and
♦ Learn how to effect social and legislative change in the environment.
Choose to attend on either Saturdays or Sundays. 9 am to 4 pm.
Sessions begin Saturday June 23 and Sunday June 24, 2018. Program participation is 40 weeks per year.
