In response to growing interest in place-based stewardship education (PBSE), we’re making plans to expand the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative—with a goal of providing services and support for PBSE to schools and communities that are not currently served by a GLSI hub.
To inform our planning, we’re seeking input from K-12 educators, administrators, community partners, and other organizations that serve K-12 education. If you work in one of these roles, please take a few minutes and share your thoughts and ideas by taking a short survey.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) literacy is a powerful tool in today’s world, and a critical focus in many classrooms. Many of the projects that students undertake through the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative involve one or more of the STEM subjects.
Recently, the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative was named as one of only four Michigan-based organizations that provide exemplary STEM programs for Michigan’s K–12 schools. The designation came from Change the Equation/STEMWorks, a national organization that conducts rigorous reviews of STEM programs across the country.
