Led by: Holly Menninger

Middle school learners from urban schools lack opportunities for experiential learning about Earth and life sciences. We will provide middle school learners from MSP with field trip experiences at the Bell Museum, which features world-class exhibits, a planetarium, a learning landscape with extensive pollinator habitat, a stormwater pond, and rain gardens, and an institutional commitment to racial and social justice. We will work with teachers to develop resources for using urban nature in their own school yards and neighborhoods to engage with students about science in ways that meet state science standards.
