NEW TOOL: Using science investigations to develop caring practices for social-ecological systems

Posted on June 23, 2019

Science education should serve many purposes. It can importantly help us better understand our place in this world—and the responsibilities we should hold. This is increasingly important as human-caused changes to the environment require us to now learn how to respond and care for damaged ecosystems. This new STEM Teaching Tool shows how students can develop these caring relationships with different species and places through science and engineering investigations. Gratitude goes out to Rachel Han for taking the lead on developing this one in my graduate climate science education class this year.
