Thanks to the support of Alcoa Foundation, Eco-Schools programme has launched a global K-12 environmental literacy initiative focused on Green STEM. The project will educate children about environmental issues through science, technology, engineering and maths skills.
Through this project, twenty thousand students will be given opportunities to assess, design, and build innovative solutions to environmental challenges.
The pilot project is implemented in:
- the United States
Green STEM utilises project-based learning to provide students with authentic, real-life environmental and sustainability issues to tackle while emphasizing 21st century skills development like critical thinking, problem solving, cooperation, communication and teamwork. And it does this within the context of the students’ own communities, making the experience more relevant, inspiring, and engaging.
FEE’s internationally acclaimed Eco-Schools programme provides a framework to help educators integrate sustainability principles throughout their schools and curriculum and provides a model for environmentally sound practices, enhancing science and academic achievement.
