Inspiring the Next Generation of Environmental Scientists
The ITEST program is working to motivate youth to pursue the many STEM-related careers and educational pathways available. One popular avenue of engaging students in a variety of STEM disciplines is by making connections to their environment. Many projects employ problem-based learning to discover environmental issues and explore potential solutions. This Earth Day we highlight ITEST publications, instruments, and curricular materials related to the study of environmental issues and how the next generation is being prepared to take on these challenges in the future.
