Thanks to a generous grant of $1,500 by the LANL Foundation in late 2013, the Pajarito Environmental Education Center has been able to build on the success of its hands-on field science program in Los Alamos elementary schools.
The Pajarito Plateau Field Science (PPFS) curriculum is designed to get students outside doing hands-on field science in their schoolyards or on local trails. It also focuses on giving teachers the tools and training they need to enhance STEM curriculum.
Elementary science is increasingly being taught using only textbooks. To become scientific thinkers, students need to do science, rather than just read about it. Hands-on, outdoor field science has been shown to improve motivation, attention and test scores.
PEEC’s goal with this program is to bring kids outside to learn science while exploring their schoolyards, and increasing their love of science and nature. In addition, the program strives to educate teachers about the benefits of outdoor education, as well as some of the methods and tools of field science.
