Global GreenSTEM elevates STEM education to a new level of purpose and impact                          that sparks curiosity and empathy in participants while reinforcing teamwork and communication skills. We work with educators to transform materials-based STEM activities and programs into real-world projects with personal connections to the learner. Learners, community, and the natural environment all benefit when academic learning merges with real world understanding and impact.  

Global GreenSTEM works with formal and non-formal educators, organizations, agencies, and learners of all ages in both indoor and outdoor settings around the world. Our professional learning, curriculum development, program planning, presentations, and innovative partnerships also incorporate effective instructional strategies and can be aligned to Next Generation Science Standards, UN Sustainable Development Goals, Education for Sustainability Standards, and other targeted education standards.

We believe that…

When students CARE, they want to learn.

When students LEARN something personally relevant, they want to respond.

When students RESPOND, they make an IMPACT that changes the world.

 

Global GreenSTEM experiences connect learners' hearts (care) and minds (learn) to inspire action (respond) that makes a positive impact. Learners who see a real purpose and connection to what they are investigating will actively seek out knowledge and skills to gain greater understanding. This understanding can empower them to investigate and solve real-world problems that affect themselves and others. This educational experience can propel these active learners to become active lifelong citizens and leaders, to pursue higher educational opportunities and to aspire to careers that fit their passion.
