Wildfire Education

We can all help make the world a safer place by learning more about how and why wildfires start. From historical statistics, to the resources we use to put wildfires out, to ways to do your part to prevent wildfires, teaching people about wildfires is an important part of what we do.

FireWorks - an educational program about the science of wildland fire, designed for students in grades K-12. It provides students with interactive, hands-on materials to study wildland fire. It is highly interdisciplinary, and students learn about properties of matter, chemical and physical processes, ecosystem fluctuations and cycles, habitat and survival, and human interactions with ecosystems. Students using FireWorks ask questions, gather information, analyze, and interpret it, and communicate their discoveries. Curriculum available at https://www.frames.gov/fireworks/home
