Imagine a school district that provides unique and engaging opportunities for students to achieve excellence in science subjects through exploring the outdoors.
Berea City School District provides the Coe Lake Outdoor Science Education course to high school juniors and seniors. High school students engage K, 3rd, and 4th graders in lessons requiring them to critically think and problem solve and to take personal action and develop a lifelong love for the Earth system.
Lessons are aligned with the Revised Ohio Science Content Standards and provide meaningful educational opportunities for both high school and elementary students. This far reaching, nontraditional science course blossomed in 2003 and since then has provided meaningful learning experiences to over 10,000 BCSD students
