Who is Field Studies for Schools (FSS) for?
FSS programs are for teachers and school administrators who seek significant in-depth activities for their students that will improve specific learning objectives and students’ understanding of natural science concepts, foster class camaraderie, and provide positive learning experiences that can serve as learning incentives. The ITE FSS programs also serve home school groups for youth ages 12-18.
S.T.E.M. & FSS
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines are strongly emphasized in education, particularly at middle and high school levels. The National Science Foundation defines Science as the study of the natural world, including the laws of nature associated with physics, chemistry, and biology and the treatment or application of facts, principles, concepts, or conventions associated with these disciplines.
What to Expect from FSS?
Students engage in field-based activities that are experiential and hands-on. Outings focus on environmental science, discovery, and skill-building activities that connect students with nature and field science experts. ITE provides skilled staff, experience, and resources that support teachers and fosters learning. ITE can meet all the needs of teachers by providing staff, transportation, field curricula, and equipment from half-day urban activities to extended week-long expeditions.
Can’t get out in the field? Consider ITE Live!
ITE Live! uses a synchronized learning model where ITE field instructors connect to you and your class via a live streaming platform. Just like an in-person FSS program, our staff guide you on a journey in the urban and/or natural environment to share stories and knowledge of the land. You and your class can interact and stay connected with our staff in the field using a chat box.
