Students delved into the STEM ideas behind the urban environmental solutions demonstrated at the Civic Garden Center’s Green Learning Station.
The Green Learning Team is an opportunity for 25 11th and 12th graders from Princeton High School and Hughes STEM High School to delve into the science, technology, engineering and math behind the urban environmental solutions demonstrated at the Green Learning Station. Students explored the technical details behind the Green Learning Station’s sustainable demonstrations and the education and career paths related to them. Each gathering will focus on a distinct theme presented through hands-on activities by a local expert: engineers from the Metropolitan Sewer District, University of Cincinnati students who developed the Green Learning Station sensor network, local farmers and composters, and architects.

Volunteers provide students with online academic guidance and career counseling, while letting them know that adults care about their issues and concerns.
This project created and nurtured technology-enabled mentoring relationships between IBM employees and “at-risk” students from Deer Park Junior / Senior High School. IBM mentors guided the students through an online eMentoring curriculum designed to increase students’ self-awareness, confidence, and interest in STEM career fields.
