Did you know that in 1992 and 2002 State Environmental Education Roundtable studies researchers found that environment-based education programs improved science achievement in 100% of students.
However, science isn’t the only subject where learning gains were made. Students also demonstrated achievement gains in language arts and reading, as well as improved critical thinking skills and motivation regardless of socioeconomic or cultural factors.
CAEE works to ensure everyone in Colorado has an opportunity to learn about the environment where they live. We value inclusiveness and welcome everyone to the field of environmental education.
