Environmental Learning Outside the Classroom (ELOC), coordinated by both the Virgin Islands Marine and Advisory Service (VIMAS) and the Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (VI-EPSCoR) is an initiative that uses best practices in informal STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) education to help make Science fun and engaging. Through ELOC, educators can partner with us to plan and coordinate STEM-based activities, that align with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), are locally relevant, and highlight the importance of our native flora and fauna.
LETS MAKE SCIENCE EDUCATION FUN!
Registering for an ELOC activity is quick, simple, and can be done in 3 easy steps!
- Download the Lesson Plan to familiarize yourself with the objectives and specific
material covered during each activity.
- Download the Release Forms and ensure that each participating student signs them and
return with them on the day of the field trip (not needed for classroom presentations). These forms ensure that the University is not held responsible in case of an student
injuries or accidents as well providing UVI with permission to photograph the field
trip to use for promotional purposes.
