Student Photos–Greenfox5 Curriculum at Work!

The fall has been a productive one for Greenfox Schools. We have been partnering with many schools to bring the Greenfox5 curriculum model into after-school programs and classrooms, teaching youth about Products, Food, Energy, Waste, and Greenspace (Greenfox5).

Greenfox Staff has been teaching students about the science behind sustainability measures, and students have been working on hands-on and creative projects incorporating elements of science, technology, engineering, and math in the Greenfox5 curriculum, and empowering students to make environmental sustainability changes in their own schools.
