Earth Force is proud to announce our new project: Empowered STEM!
For years educators and schools have been asking us to help them doing something like Earth Force outside of environmental issues. After several month of developing and design we are proud to announce our new Empowered STEM Initiative.
Empowered STEM uses Earth Force’s award winning Community Action and Problem-Solving Process (CAPS) to transform classrooms into engaged learning environments where young people are excited to apply what they have learn in the classroom to improve their communities.
Empowered STEM is like project-based learning with two important differences:
First, students participating in an Empowered STEM classroom are tackling the big challenges facing their communities from equity to climate change.
Second, students participating in an Empowered STEM classroom develop solutions in partnership with stakeholders and implement them in the communities where they live and work.
For more information about the project take a look at the new Empowered STEM website!
Please share this with educators or schools who are looking for new ways to make their STEM classes fun and engaging.
