Inspiring Student Environmental Stewardship

The Green Ninja Program focuses on helping students create agency about their learning and the world they live in.  Their educational materials originated from research at San José State University that focused on connecting middle school students to science subjects through personal engagement. Support from NSF and NASA helped us better understand student engagement and the powerful role that motivation plays in student learning.
