Designed for program leaders, the toolkit includes assessments, hiring tips, training guides, and materials for use in the field.

Resources for outdoor science programs: Our professional learning resources are designed for program leaders to use with field instructors. They provide experiences and rationale about outdoor science instruction designed to inspire instructors to improve their teaching. Our student activities inspire students’ wonder and curiosity about the natural world, support their innate tendencies for exploration and guide them to make explanations based on evidence.
