BEETLES Project Releases New (free!) Resources for Outdoor Science Programs & Educators

Hi, Natural Teachers!

BEETLES (Better Environmental Education, Teaching, Learning & Expertise Sharing) is excited to announce the launch of its redesigned and retooled website.


BEETLES is devoted to infusing outdoor science programs with research-based approaches and tools to improve science teaching and learning. Resources include:

  • versatile environmental education professional learning materials;
  • student activities for use in the field;
  • "how-to" videos; and
  • additional support for program leaders, field instructors, and classroom teachers.


All BEETLES resources are based on current research and understandings about how people learn, and tested by dozens of programs in diverse settings all over the country (and beyond!). Although BEETLES materials have been designed for residential outdoor science schools, they’ve been snatched up and used successfully in a wide variety of outdoor science education settings. Learn more at


BEETLES is one of many programs at the Lawrence Hall of Science a public science center created in 1968 as part of the University of California at Berkeley.


Please feel free to reach out with specific questions! We love hearing from like-minded folks.
