Every box employs active learning strategies to engage students in hands-on projects that foster critical thinking and problem solving skills. These standards-based lessons are designed to enhance student literacy in various STEM subject areas, from water conservation in the Desert Southwest to the environmental impact associated with natural resource extraction. Best of all, this resource is offered FREE of cost to any formal or informal educator in Nevada!
