Science Lesson Plans from Modules in Ecology and Evolution Development (MEED)

The goal of the MEED program is to provide hands-on learning in ecology and evolution to local K-12 students through modules (experiential classroom learning activities) developed by trained UBC Faculty of Science graduate students. Program participants attend workshops on outreach and science communication, meet with local teachers, and ultimately create their own module for educators to use.

Our program specifically targets ecology and evolution education due to the importance of these disciplines to understanding current problems such as the loss of biodiversity with climate change, the spread of invasive species, the vulnerability of species at risk and species range shifts.
