WE NHEE'd to Get Outside Grant Update

We are so excited to report that our NHEEd to Get Outside Grant was a huge success, with more than 20 schools and organizations from all over the state applying for funding to support field trips. Thank you to all of those who applied! We were able to provide funds for 10 trips, which will provide close to 800 students with meaningful, experiential education opportunities in the outdoors. Our only regret is that we could not provide full funding for all of the applicants, and so we want to send out a plea for support.

Tips for Real-World, Age-Appropriate Environmental Education

There are so many real-world issues we're coping with these days, and it's important to get kids involved in finding, designing and building solutions. However, whether your an educator, parent or caregiver, it can be hard to know where to start, or which projects are age appropriate so that kids are inspired rather than overwhelmed. This diagram, based largely off of research by David Sobel and others, was developed by Aubrey Nelson, former NHEE president, to help communicate which real-world projects might be cognitively appropriate for kids.

Climate Change Education in NH

As part of a larger EPA grant received from New England Environmental Education Alliance, each New England state was to determine what climate change education activities were occurring.   In New Hampshire, we developed a simple survey for collecting this information.  This was a non-random survey, it was disseminated through a variety of list serves and personal email lists of NHEE members.  The results are presented here.
