Josh Falk joined NEEF in December of 2014. Prior to that, he worked for two years as Director of Education at the Annapolis Maritime Museum, running a regional educational program. Previously, Josh worked as an educator at The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, coordinating both high school research projects and an international citizen science project focused on climate change. Josh also spent four years living on and running a residential environmental education program for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation on Smith Island, the only offshore-inhabited island in Maryland. Josh holds a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from Drew University. When not at NEEF, you can find Josh in his canoe with his sons, Finn and Jackson, and his wife, Hilary.
Josh’s project will be an interactive webinar series focused on greening STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). The environment is a compelling context for teaching STEM as it provides teachers with a diverse range of real-world challenges that engage students in hands-on opportunities to apply and reinforce STEM concepts across multiple subject areas. Each broadcast in this series will be interactive, engaging, target both formal and informal educators, and will include a downloadable resource.
