Nature Matters ACADEMY?
Nature Matters Academy helps kids develop critical thinking and self-regulation skills so they can turn any experience into an opportunity to learn, grow, and have fun.
We offer teachers, schools, and out-of-school-time professions a variety of STEAM curriculum bundles for in the classroom, STEAM nature clubs for afterschool, and professional development on how to integrate outdoor learning.
Critical thinking is the #1 skill that companies look for in new employees, yet so few kids graduate high school with these skills. We walk along side you to develop critical thinking skills in your kids so they can reach their potential.
Every lesson includes fun, engaging, and hands-on activities that kids and parents love! We build STEM/ STEAM skills and confidence through real world experiences where kids get to practice critical thinking to answer questions and solve problems.
We think outside the box of traditional education by getting kids outside where they have ample opportunities to solve real-world problems, explore things they're interested in, and thinking creatively through challenges. When outside, every distraction becomes a teachable moment.
So many of our smart, gifted, and twice exceptional kids suffer from a lack of self-awareness or self-regulation. We use lessons and strategies to help kids learn more about themselves and how they can leverage nature to self-regulate.
