"I love the GreenSTEM focus. It encourages students to be observant of the world around them, see problems, and then be motivated to solve them. Students are empowered when they feel like they can make a difference."
Middle school teacher, GreenSTEM workshop
"Approaching a project with an open inquiry allows for students to have different ideas to solve a problem. Each idea can lead to discovery of what works and what does not. This is most helpful because it allows students to explore a wide range of possibilities, and to think and rethink the process of discovery."

"I believe that if you bring aquaponics into the middle schools, you are essentially empowering the future island citizens. When the youth learn ways to grow their own food, they can take ownership of their personal health and wellness."
Leah Koch, Guam teacher
"It is very important that the content students learn at school helps them understand our island environment and leads them toward participating in our island conservation."
