Earth Day Every Day a Hit
The School of Education completed its second year of Earth Day Every Day teacher training this summer with a record number of participants. Funded by a grant from the State of Indiana, professors from IU South Bend connected teachers and students from the South Bend School Corporation to outdoor science education through natural resources in the area. Students in the IU South Bend School of Education assisted and got hands-on experience in outdoor environmental education while working directly with SBCSC teachers and intermediate grade students. Local teachers got training in outdoor education and local elementary and middle school students learned about science and the environment in a fun way. More than 100 teachers and students participated.
