Sponsored by Samsung, National Environmental Education Week (EE Week) is the nation's largest celebration of environmental education. It is held each year the week before Earth Day and inspires environmental learning and stewardship among K-12 students. The 2014 theme, Greening STEM: Engineering a Sustainable World, will explore the application of engineering to sustainable solutions for a healthier planet and healthier people. This is part of our series on Greening STEM.
Since its inception in 2005, EE Week has reached hundreds of thousands of students and educators across the United States with non-biased, high-quality, environmental education materials grounded in accurate, timely scientific information and tied to local, state and national learning standards.
Collected here are resources and offerings for EE Week 2014, including STEM & Engineering info, annual photo contest info, educator toolkits and EE Week registration information. Register for EE Week to receive updates and to take full advantage of the benefits of EE Week. Then help spread the word by sharing EE Week with others!
