Outdoor Environmental Education
The Great Outdoors makes science and related curriculum come alive.
The results are significant.
The Storer Outdoor School is a hands-on total immersion learning center serving more than 120 elementary and middle schools each year.
“The Great Outdoors” makes science and related curriculum come alive, and significantly more relevant, for each student.
Each year, more than 13,000 students and teachers spend 3-5 days and nights on-site at our Outdoor School. Storer’s staff of educators offers more than 30 courses that teach natural sciences, environmental issues, cultural history, and team building through active participation.
The importance of outdoor experiences reported in independent studies that show OEE programs raise science scores by as much as 27% and that OEE programs have a positive effect on student achievement in general.
In addition, studies show that outdoor educational experiences positively impact student behavior and interaction with peers as shown through improved conflict resolution skills.
The results are measurable and significant.
