National Informal STEM Education Network: My Community

In this Short Activity, learners can draw their neighborhoods and talk about what they like best or least about the places they live. Then, learners are challenged to draw potential improvements they’d like to see in their communities.

In My Community, museum visitors can draw their neighborhoods and talk about what they like best or least about the places they live. They can check out the Changing Communities, and think of ways these spaces could be improved to help people, the planet, and the economy. Then, visitors can imagine how these solutions and others could be applied to their own neighborhoods, and change their drawings to make their neighborhoods better today and in the future.

LEARNING GOALS

  • Sustainable communities meet the needs of people, the planet, and the economy.
  • We all have a role in creating a more sustainable future.
  • We can work together to make our communities more sustainable.
