Rebecca Meyer

Rebecca Meyer has more than 15 years of experience designing and delivering experiential programs for youth. Her programs have focused on environmental and science education in schools, non-formal settings, and nature areas. She was a Minnesota regional trainer in science and engineering activities for community-based organizations through the National Partnership for After School Science project (N-PASS). She co-wrote a revised national curriculum, the Exploring Your Environment series (2010), and co-author of the Building Environmental Youth Leadership: A High School Service-learning Curriculum (2003).

Rebecca currently focuses on design and development of educational programs, curricula and other resources for use with youth and adults, including: a National Science Foundation-funded project called Enabling Authentic Inquiry through Citizen Science, and the national Museums Afterschool: Principles, Data, and Design project, which aims to identify design principles for high quality Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programming in out-of-school-time settings.
