The STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) play an important role in students' holistic development.
Educating students in STEM fields is critical to our nation's success and is a integral part of the National Wildlife Federation's mission.
The GLOBE program provides students the opportunity to engage in citizen science via a variety of Earth system protocols. Using an inquiry-based, hands-on design to develop student ability to use systems thinking, students scaffold their learning through the Eco-Schools USA program and apply their GLOBE knowledge to the Seven Step Framework. Student action teams perform environmental audits, design and create action plans, and work with the community to solve local, real-world environmental issues.
