Here’s how your school can participate in the STEM Week Challenge!
During the STEM Week Challenge, students will have an opportunity to dig deeper into sustainability topics and take an in-depth look at the goods and energy we consume. Through hands-on activities anchored in STEM, students will learn how to apply their collective creativity and innovation to solve a real-world waste challenge. Through their problem-solving efforts, students will forge relationships with local community and industry partners as they pursue Zero Waste solutions.
The APB approach not only makes learning more relevant, but it also empowers students to develop both technical and in-demand skills that are valuable and transportable across all industries. These skills – including problem solving, critical and creative thinking, collaboration, communication, and ethical reasoning – are critical to students’ success later in life and are proven to be the most demanded and valued in the job market.
