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 and 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.

Green STEM Topics


 

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 Green Architecture will teach about sustainable buildings that can be designed to integrate the use of green building materials, water efficiency, energy efficiency, and renewable energy.  This introduces students to the integration of features such as low-flow faucets, LED lighting, reclaimed materials, building-integrated photovoltaics, and rooftop gardens.  This instruction will explain the technologies used in developing green buildings as well as the engineering needed for both newly constructing and retrofitting buildings.

 

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.

Immersive Learning

We design immersive learning environments for STEM-based green technologies education. This video displays a STEM Classroom that we have developed as an example of an immersive learning environment that can become reality.  Powered by renewable energy and designed to engage the student to feel completely surrounded by what they are learning, this STEM classroom is a simulated environment that can be built as well as visited virtually through advanced camera technology, virtual and augmented reality, and distance education.

Career Pathways

We introduce students to career pathways such as sustainable engineering and green architecture to provide them with the education and training they need to pursue careers within the emerging green economy. Students skilled in math and science will be able to compete for the many career opportunities that address the growing need for sustainability and environmental responsibility.
