All BEETLES (Better Environmental Education, Teaching, Learning & Expertise Sharing) resources are based on current research and understandings about how people learn, and tested by dozens of programs in diverse settings all over the country (and beyond!). Although BEETLES materials have been designed for residential outdoor science schools, they’ve been snatched up and used successfully in a wide variety of outdoor science education settings.
OBIS is an outdoor program that offers young people fun and challenging opportunities to investigate ecological relationships in their local environment.
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are based on the premise that the purpose of learning science is to help students understand the natural world, solve problems, improve their lives and communities, and make the world a better place. Environmental Literacy is deeply embedded throughout NGSS and should be deeply embedded throughout your science curriculum, too.
