    GreenSTEM Teachers’ reflections

    The kids really loved the opportunity to talk about these issues.  I got several Dojo messages from parents saying their children shared what they learned with them!  

    My students enjoyed our GreenSTEM lesson! They had great discussion and thoughts about how to help our environment.

    The GreenSTEM Zoom experience was valuable and interesting… it added an extra dimension to our science learning. Just provide your classroom Zoom link and Ms. Logsdon will do the rest!

    We really enjoyed the Green STEM lesson.  Tresine and Logan prepared everything and we had to do very little on the teacher end ahead of time.  The presentation was engaging and informative.  This is a perfect example of an opportunity to engage your students with application of content in a real world setting.  I would highly recommend it for any classroom.

    My students LOVED having a guest speaker and really enjoyed the GreenSTEM lesson!  They were engaged and interested in the topic the entire time. After, they were very thankful, and one student mentioned that it was nice because it was like what would have happened in normal school.  I would highly recommend this lesson as a welcomed change for the teacher and the students
