The Tree Equity Curriculum: Exploring Green STEAM Careers is a modular curriculum intended to engage high school students (9th-12th grade) in inquiry-based learning processes by applying knowledge they’ve acquired in science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics (STEAM) courses to real world, practical problems, generate solutions and solve such problems. The curriculum was designed for educators interested in exposing their students to green jobs that protect and enhance our environment and encouraging students to make real-world connections of career exploration through the lens of professionals in green careers. American Forests coined the term Urban ForeSTEAM as part of an effort to drive change in how students learn about urban forestry through experiential education and exploring green careers.
