As part of the education mission
of the Field Station and Environmental Education Center
, training teachers that will enable them to extend their instruction to include the natural world is a priority. Many resources are provided to the community, and include K-12 courses
, activities and lesson plans
as well as benchmarks and standards
. Programs such as GLOBE and PIE
have allowed Ball State graduate students in the sciences to partner with K-12 students and teachers to provide a variety of opportunities for students of all ages and interests.
