Students will facilitate K-12 classroom lesson plans and activities using an interdisciplinary STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) approach. The course is tied to OneTree Alaska, an education, outreach and research project that uses the boreal forest as a springboard for active, place-based learning. OneTree Alaska is a program of the UAF School of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences.

Each service learner will spend at least 10 hours in the classroom during spring semester and meet for one hour each week (proposed time 8 to 9 a.m. on Wednesdays in O'Neill 356). Participants will also need to attend sessions one or two Saturdays per month to meet with teachers and prepare classroom materials.
