School Programs

Research shows that children’s social, psychological, academic and physical health is positively impacted when they have daily contact with nature. Environmental education engages students in learning and raises test scores. The Metroparks Interpretive school programs are great examples of STEM-based environmental education, with hands-on activities, cooperative learning, and critical thinking discussions. Programs also meet NGSS and GLCE standards. Many programs are available as EDventures- presented by an Interpreter at your school. See the School Program Guide for all the details.
