Promoting environmental responsibility is the emphasis of most NetworkArts science programs. Through the creation of over 125 ecological mosaics, NetworkArts is working with students throughout the region to create an outdoor classroom focused on environmental education. The goal of NetworkArts is to infuse children with knowledge to become advocates for the environment.


Topics covered in this area have included the science behind climate change, a 20,000 year timeline of man's use of Earth's resources, green cities and green architecture, global biomes, bird migration and flight, ocean surface currents as they relate to land climate, environmental protection strategies, patterns of forest growth, history of pollution in the Delaware Estuary, rainforests, and the importance of wetlands, among many others.


NetworkArts also offers other outstanding science programs, including a curriculum devoted to the history of astronomy, telescopes, the solar system, the life cycle of stars, galaxies and clusters, and the history of rocketry. In fact, a recent astronomy project was a collaboration with Homer Hickam, best-selling author and former NASA scientist whose boyhood fascination with rocketry was the subject of the movie “October Sky.”
