Turning school ground natural areas into environmental labs
Date:8/20/2010

INDIANAPOLIS Public school grounds will become environmental education laboratories when a 20-foot green and blue mobile technology trailer pulls into the parking lots at Creekside Middle School in Carmel, Ind. and dozens of other elementary and middle schools in nine Indiana counties this fall and spring.

Outfitted with interactive technology tools, web interface and sophisticated computerized mapping capabilities, the mobile resource vehicle brings the innovative, hands-on Discovering the Science of the Environment (DSE) mobile program from the School of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis to thousands of students in grades four through nine.

These resources turn school ground natural areas into environmental laboratories, giving young budding scientists the opportunity to explore, analyze and learn about the nature around them. The focus is on immersing youth in natural environments with the goal of inspiring future leaders in science, technology, and environmental sustainability.

The students aren't the only ones who eagerly participate in a DSE program. Interdisciplinary teams of central Indiana teachers have the opportunity to take part in the week-long DSE Summer Institute.

The program assists in the establishment, maintenance, and use of outdoor school laboratories that meet state academic standards. Upon completion of the institute, teachers are poised to take advantage of the sophisticated resources DSE provides to teach students about soil, water quality, wetlands, plant biodiversity and dozens of other topics, fully integrating environmental science into their classrooms.

Corporate and foundation partners including Veolia Water, Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust, Eli Lilly and Company Foundation, Dow AgroSciences, Indianapolis Power and Light Company, Duke Energy Foundation, the Hoover Family Foundation and the UPS Foundation support the program and enable DSE to provide both
