The project's goal is to increase interest, preparedness, and diverse representation of students, particularly girls, in STEM disciplines, improve their environmental literacy, attitude and behaviors and make explicit connections between the new Common Core Learning Standards the content and principles of Education for Sustainability. The project's strategy is to provide professional development for K-12 teachers using relevant, engaging 21st century contexts and methodologies that include active learning, collaboration, problems/issues-based connections, action research and critical thinking.
