BEETLES Project

All BEETLES (Better Environmental Education, Teaching, Learning & Expertise Sharing) resources are based on current research and understandings about how people learn, and tested by dozens of programs in diverse settings all over the country (and beyond!). Although BEETLES materials have been designed for residential outdoor science schools, they’ve been snatched up and used successfully in a wide variety of outdoor science education settings.
