Educating for Environmental Change (EfEC), an Environmental Resilience Institute-supported program to help Indiana educators teach climate change in the classroom, recently received Indiana’s top environmental award, the Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence, for “extraordinary initiatives in protecting the environment.”

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the governor for our work helping educators teach climate science and environmental education,” said Adam Scribner, Director of STEM Education Initiatives for the Indiana University School of Education and one of the EfEC organizers. “For the last four years, our team of educators and IU scientists have put a tremendous amount of effort into connecting Indiana teachers with the tools and resources they need to engage students in scientific practices.”
