What is MEECS?

MEECS stands for Michigan Environmental Education Curriculum Support. The goal of MEECS is to provide students in grades 3 through 12 with an opportunity to learn more about their environment through lessons in Science and Social Studies.  The MEECS curriculum consists of seven different curriculum units; Air Quality, Climate Change, Ecosystems & Biodiversity, Energy Resources, Land Use, Land and Environment, and Water Quality. The units have been field tested by teachers in over 200 Michigan classrooms.  The modular lessons can be used individually, as units or a series of units as part of a multi-year environmental education curriculum.
