The KTFR curriculum is designed to be flexibly purposeful, agentic, validating, inclusive, as well as academically rigorous. It seeks to inspire the co-creation of STEAM educational experiences which position students as change agents, who understand the importance of using evidence-based reasoning to make informed decisions and shape messaging that connects.
Students learn how to access STEM knowledge, tools, and practices to assess their community's flood hazard risk and make ready for impending extreme weather. Just as important, they work with ARTISTS to develop the creative competencies necessary to effectively communicate their understandings of their hazard risks and propose solutions for mitigating them.
Through the power of both the sciences and the arts, students develop capacity to become resources of hazard mitigation knowledge and practices for their entire community.
