Science joins with technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) for a richer and more realistic learning experience. Some schools have gone further, adding another “e” to the STEM acronym to infuse the environment into this cross-disciplinary thinking. Others have added an “a,” weaving art and design into the equation.

We see the opportunities that lie ahead for students and teachers, particularly as they relate to environment-based education as a perfect platform for exploring the core ideas in science, technology, engineering, math, and yes, art. As students journey onto school grounds, trails, and the edges of creeks, they discover that the knowledge they’ve gleaned has real-life meaning. The resources we offer have STEM applications. We have always sought materials that facilitate inter-disciplinary studies for the over two decades.
