OUR EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS
Blueeggs Environmental Education also create educational materials to enhance both academic achievement and environmental/SDG knowledge of children. While traditional educational materials provide information on their subject matters only, our materials integrated environmental subjects into some of the most important core academic subjects – mathematics/social studies/science. Using actual data and real-life examples, our materials also provide children opportunities to stimulate independent thinking, promote their academic success, and gain confidence in their abilities to learn.
