Workshop on Engaging Persons with Disabilities in the Environmental Sciences and Forestry

We are pleased to announce a new partnership between the Forest Service and the University of Southern Maine to develop a hybrid experiential educational program linking real time learning experiences with Real Time data to better engage students and staff with special needs in the environmental sciences and forestry.

Read the Press Release from the Forest Service.

Our first activity is a half-day workshop to be held at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest on March 14, 2014, where our USM colleagues will present 10 years of experience working with STEM students with disabilities, our Hubbard Brook staff will share background on our RealTime environmental sensor technology, and we will have a panel discussion to explore avenues of cooperation and collaboration between the programs.
