Introducing an exciting new partnership

Boston Museum of Science + Pear Deck

Pear Deck has partnered with EiE®, The Boston Museum of Science’s award-winning curricula division, to engage students in learning and discussion about climate change. With these ready-to-teach lessons powered by Pear Deck, students can explore how our actions affect the environment, and how they can leverage this knowledge to make a positive difference in the world.

Boston Museum of Science

EiE®, the award-winning curricula division of the Museum of Science, Boston, develops evidence-based, classroom-tested engineering and computer science programs that empower children to become lifelong STEM learners and passionate problem solvers. Since 2003, EiE has designed PreK–8 curricula to encourage all children to see themselves as engineers.

AN ENGINEERING DESIGN CHALLENGE, POWERED BY PEAR DECK

The five lessons in this collection were designed by EiE and Pear Deck to support this year’s Engineering Design Challenge,“See Yourself in STEM.”

To better allow educators and students to see themselves in STEM, the Museum of Science and EiE have developed an engineering design challenge that focuses on plastic. The following slides explore how plastic is made, plastic’s environmental consequences, and the benefits of making plastic biodegradable.

Climate Change Lessons, Powered by Pear Deck

The five lessons in this collection are designed by EiE to introduce students to four effects of climate change: extreme temperatures, extreme precipitation, wildfires and drought, and rising sea level.

We recommend teaching the Climate Change Overview lesson first to provide students with background knowledge about the causes and effects of climate change. Since local relevance is key to student engagement with climate change concepts, we recommend prioritizing lessons about events that affect your community directly.
