Next Education Matters explores environmental education in Kentucky

For Release: 2013-02-25 09:02:00

The next Education Matters, “Environmental Education in Kentucky,” explores how environmental education helps Kentucky students master science and other academic content through engaging hands-on learning experiences that demonstrate how their choices and actions affect the world around them. The program, hosted by Bill Goodman, airs Monday, March 18 at 9/8 p.m. on KET.

The program includes a visit to Blackacre Nature Reserve in Louisville to see a group of inner-city students participating in field study activities and to West Carter Middle School in Olive Hill, where students have built a zero-energy greenhouse for growing lettuce and other vegetables.

Scheduled panelists for the program include:

--Elizabeth Schmitz, Kentucky Environmental Education Council
--Sean Elkins, science consultant at the Kentucky Department of Education
--Tresine Logsdon, energy and sustainability curriculum coordinator for Fayette County Public Schools
--Dr. Melinda Wilder, professor of curriculum and instruction and director of the Division of Natural Areas at Eastern Kentucky University

Education Matters is a KET production. More information about KET programming and education services, as well as how to support KET, can be found at ket.org.
