Why A Capital Campaign?

We believe that every child deserves strong and inspired leaders and that the spirit of KSS is made of the relationships built between student and teacher, camper and counselor, volunteer and staff member. Our campus fosters these relationships and we believe everyone deserves to be proud to call it home – a place to inspire learning, friendships, and curiosity.

CSI: Sustainable Cities

Climate Status Investigations: Sustainable Cities

CSI using lab equip

This hybrid program unites the investigative focus of our Climate Status Investigations program with the critical analysis and big-picture thinking processes of our Students for Sustainabilities model. 

Educators will walk away able to lead their own students through an exploration of the many aspects of global climate change using hands-on inquiry. They will also learn techniques and gain curricular tools and lesson plans to explore the environmental, public health, social, and economic impacts of climate change.

This training provides teachers with the inquiry-based learning practices, critical thinking skills, democratic processes, and action-taking strategies to analyze and address major issues and come up with viable solutions to sustainability needs in their own communities.

By providing a non-biased scientific framework within which to examine issues around global climate change and sustainability, the curriculum is intended to improve the decision-making abilities of students. The format allows participants to solve problems in a variety of creative ways based on the evidence and data they have collected.

Our curriculum encourages teachers and students to use their knowledge to become active community members, both locally and globally as well as preparing our future leaders for STEM careers that do not exist yet.
