Speaker: Boston Schoolyard Initiative
Wednesday, February 18, 2015
12:45 pm - 1:45 pm
Location: Baker 146
Guest speaker Kristin Metz was the Director of Education for the Boston Schoolyard Initiative (BSI) from 2000 to 2013. The BSI (http://www.schoolyards.org/) sparked two decades of collaboration across Boston, transforming asphalt schoolyards of 88 elementary schools into centers for community, recreation, and learning. The multi-stakeholder partnership helped Boston Public Schools incorporate outdoor teaching as a routine practice; and influenced science (STEM) teaching on a national level. Kristin Metz is now an Education Consultant helping schools and districts build the capacity to support outdoor teaching and learning. (This event is sponsored by ESF's Graduate Student Association (GSA), and co-hosted with ESF's Outreach Office and the ESF Office of Energy & Sustainability).
