Kids Do Ecology
Title: Kids Do Ecology
Title abbreviated: KDE
Creator: NCEAS = National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis <Santa Barbara; Calif.>
Abstract: The National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) promotes education and outreach as part of its mission to increase the public understanding of science. NCEAS developed Kids Do Ecology (KDE) in 1997 as the primary component of its outreach to grade school students. Kids do Ecology includes both this Website and a Scientist in the Classroom Program. The original focus of the KDE program was the development of the web site to teach elementary school students about ecology, experiments, and use of data. The KDE web is frequently reviewed and recommended, and continues to be heavily used in the United States and abroad. School and library web sites, teachers' organizations, scientific organizations, and many other institutions link to it from their web sites. In order to expand the reach of the site and address the needs of Spanish speaking children here in Santa Barbara, as well as nationally, a Spanish language version of the site is available.
