School Field & Stream Trips for "Stealth Science" Education

August 3 2010

Does getting a group of fourth graders more excited about the condition of a  local creek, rather than their local playground, sound like Mission Impossible?

As a matter of fact, the GreenKids program, developed by the Audubon Nationalist Society and funded in part by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute does just that. More than 20,000 students in Maryland and Virginia, many from low-income families, have participated in the GreenKids environmental science projects since 2005.

I'm wondering - are there similar projects in other states?

Kudos to HHMI for helping fund GreenKids projects!
