More than ever before, kids across the U.S. are learning about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) inside the classrooms, both public and private. What has been overlooked as STEM by most educational systems is that natural resource and cultural conservation can be found right outside everyone’s doorstep. This topic will be the starting point for a 30-minute Green STEM documentary entitled,“Conservation Kids.” Children will experience real world scenarios using STEM principles as they enjoy Mother Nature and her agricultural lands. Interviews with environmental educators, scientists, and conservationists will be used to help explain the advantages of using Green STEM in today’s global economy. Then get a chance to interact with Conservation Filmmaker Cheryle Franceschi. General Audience.

Cheryle Franceschi has created a Green STEM documentary titled “Conservation Kids” — an effort to teach young people that STEM education is right outside their doors and in their farmland, not just in a classroom. The film debuted in Maryland last month, but one segment, which you can see in this video, focuses on FFA’s impact and was shot on location at the 2018 National FFA Convention and Expo. This excerpt will air on RFD-TV on March 25.

More than ever before, kids across the U.S. are learning about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) inside classrooms, both public and private. What has been overlooked as STEM by most educational systems is that natural resource conservation can be found right outside everyone’s doorstep. In CONSERVATION KIDS – A Green STEM Documentary, real-world events using STEM principles are used to explain the connection between Mother Nature and her agricultural lands, waters, parks, soils and wildlife habitats.
In February, the film premiered at the MAEOE Conference, which is the largest statewide environmental conference in the nation. In celebration of Maryland Day, an AG Ed excerpt was broadcast on FFA TODAY on RFD-TV. The all female crew of includes writer/producer/director/ videographer Cheryle Franceschi, editor/videographer Jacquie Greff, segment producer Eloisa King and Mya Montgomery, videographer. CONSERVATION KIDS was fully sponsored by Cheryle Franceschi, Por Eco Productions/One Idea Dos Languages LLC.
The current release schedule included a screening by The Maryland Agricultural Education Foundation Board of Directors. “They were very impressed with the CONSERVATION KIDS program, and particularly liked linking student experiences with agriculture and the environment,” said George Mayo, Executive Director of MAEF. Talks are in the work for using excerpts from the film on the “Amazing! Maryland Agriculture Showcase” mobile science lab. #GreenSTEMConservation
