EH-STEP: Environmental Health Sciences Training & Education Program

Eight NIEHS centers are training teachers to use high-quality environmental health sceinces curricula. Each year (grant funding is for 3 years) will focus on a different curriculum. During Year 1 the training focus is on the ToxRAP curriculum series (K-3, 3-6, 6-9). The model that was developed through the ToxRAP Network is being used in this new NIH SEPA-funded program (began in October 2000).

EH-STEP not only continues our partnership with EOHSI/Rutgers, but it creates partnerships between 6 other NIEHS Center COEPs (Oregon State University, University of Southern California, University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Vanderbilt University, and Wayne State University).

The SWEHSC COEP is also working locally with the Environmental Education Exchange in order to meet the local teacher training goals of EH-STEP.
