School closures don't mean we can’t learn, and social distancing doesn’t mean we can’t explore the outdoors and our parks—it just means we have to do it a little differently!
So we're bringing the outdoors and science exploration to you with our brand new YouTube channel. Join our education team for fun science lessons, experiments, crafts, and more!
Bringing Science and our Parks to you at home!
Companion Resources for Videos
Some Student Stewards Science Videos have additional resources, such as Scientific Journals or coloring pages, that go along with the video. Download and print the corresponding documents to learn even more while you watch the video! You'll also find other links to outside resources if you want to keep investigating the topic. (These links are also located in the YouTube video descriptions)
This spring, the Parks Foundation participated in the Nevada Department of Wildlife's Trout in the Classroom Program! NDOW provided us with a tank habitat and Rainbow Trout eggs that we were able to observe as they developed, hatched, grew, and eventually were released! So use the resources and videos below to learn about all things trout!
