Building a Better Future for Our Customers as One Global CEMEX View
CEMEX’s Environmental Education Centers are outdoor classrooms that provide an alternative learning environment where students can discover Florida’s delicate ecosystems.
Since 1994, CEMEX has been in partnership with the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC), which is a nonprofit, non-lobbying 501(c) 3 group of corporations, conservation organizations, and individuals dedicated to restoring and enhancing habitat.
This partnership has helped CEMEX give students across the state of Florida an exciting opportunity to learn in a setting that is far from traditional.
Our East Aggregate Division currently has 6 classrooms in Florida that are certified through WHC’s distinguished Wildlife At Work and Corporate Lands for Learning Programs.
The curriculum and learning activities that take place at the classrooms are designed to provide students with hands-on problem solving opportunities which build scientific thinking and process skills. Students observe, make hypotheses and predictions, design experiments, set up data collection stations, gather and record data, and then analyze to draw logical conclusions. They communicate their observations and findings using the language of scientists. The teaching “staff” includes classroom teachers and CEMEX employees specifically trained in environmental education and expert scientists working in environmental fields.
