Green STEM Education

In response to the need for a highly skilled renewable and green technologies workforce, we have developed a program called Green STEM Education.  This program incorporates the STEM fields of study, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, to delivers the instruction and training necessary to enable students to compete in the globally competitive clean energy and green technologies economy.  We bring our knowledge and expertise to our instructional designs, teaching STEM through topics such as renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, resource management, sustainable habitats, and green architecture.  We understand that today's students are tomorrow's professionals.  Through application of the National Educational Technology Plan, we aim to prepare today's students to use and develop tomorrow's renewable and green technologies.

Instruction for Renewable Energy will teach about technologies such as solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, biomass, hydroelectricity, alternative fuels, and fuel cells. This introduces students to the science behind these various forms of energy, how they are produced, and what natural resources they use. This instruction will integrate the mathematics necessary to calculate watt-hours, power production, energy demand, and the probability of available resources at a given time.


Instruction for Sustainable Agriculture will teach about the many sustainably powered agricultural techniques and designs used within both rural and urban developments.  This introduces students to technologies such as hydroponics, aquaponics, and aeroponics, as well as other traditional and advanced horticultural methods.  This instruction will incorporate the engineering behind designing small and large-scale systems as well as the science behind how to use these techniques within any environment.


Instruction for Resource Management will teach about topics such as water conservation, soil management, air pollution, and waste management.  This introduces students to techniques such as composting, solar water distillation, recycling, and carbon sequestration.   This instruction will integrate the science and technology behind current methods of resource management as well as the engineering needed to develop future methods of conservation.


Instruction for Sustainable Habitats will include topics that discuss the localization of food, water, and energy to develop systems that are less dependant on outside resources.  This introduces students to rain water collection, urban forestry, farmer's markets, distributed energy, and the many other features of sustainable habitats.  This instruction will incorporate the mathematics needed to calculate current and future growth demand cycles as well as the technology and engineering needed to develop comprehensive systems.


Instruction for Advanced Manufacturing will teach about the various forms of additive manufacturing including 3D printing.  This introduces students to the green attributes of localized manufacturing and use of sustainable materials including recyclable and compostable filament.  This instruction incorporates the geometry, chemistry, and physics associated with creating 3D objects as well as computer science integration for desinging and rendering 3D models.

3D Green Building Project

This video is an overview of a student training we did for a 3D Green Building Design Project that utilized the book, "Solar Power."  Completed by 11th and 12th grade students, the project integrated the use of renewable energy and sustainable agriculture.  The training included 3D modeling lessons and solar kits to teach the students about solar energy, which they incorporated into their 3D Green Building Designs.

3D "Green Community"

This video is of the Green Community that was assembled using the homes designed by students in the 3D Green Building Project.  Phase I of the community includes the homes designed by the 11th grade students and Phase II includes the homes designed by the 12th grade students.  Each student's home was individually built according to the solar orientation of their assigned location within the virtual neighborhood.  This community was designed to demonstrate green architecture and resource management.

"Student-Built Green Homes"

Here are a few of the photos of the 3D models that were built by the students in the 3D Green Building Design Project.  Displayed in the "Green Community" above, each home features a solar electric system, skylights, greenhouses, and other sustainable attributes.  3D modeling allows students to be creative and explore alternatives to traditional design methods.  Using the book "Solar Power" enabled the students to build homes that effectively utilized solar electricity.  

Touchscreen Interfaces

We integrate touchscreen interfaces into our instructional designs.  This video shows how touchscreen technology has advanced to respond very quickly to interaction and can be used by multiple people at the same time.  When integrated into education, touchscreens can increase a student's computer skills, collaboration skills, and enhance their abilities to understand STEM subjects.

Enhanced Education

We integrate innovative techniques that enhance education to accelerate a student's success in challenging STEM subjects, helping to prepare them for the jobs of the future.  This video demonstrates how the natural environment can be used to help strengthen a student's comprehension of math and science in a way that cultivates their interest and enhances their educational experience.
