Students were given the opportunity to become a scientist/astronaut and learn how light plays a role in space exploration.
The Lunar Research Base Project led by iSPACE was an immersive simulation using an inquiry-based learning approach that fostered team building and introduced Fairfield Intermediate 5th grade students to STEM careers. Participants discovered the critical role light plays in space exploration and investigated properties of the electromagnetic spectrum.
The program has continued as a simulated space mission (iMISSION) in which students immersed into the role of an astronaut or space scientist and challenged to apply STEM skills in a fun, unique, and challenging way. Contact iSPACE to learn more.
Students delved into the STEM ideas behind the urban environmental solutions demonstrated at the Civic Garden Center of Cincinnati’s Green Learning Station.
The Green Learning Team was 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.
The Green Learning Station continues as an important environmentally-focused STEM learning place and the learning team has evolved into the Green Girls in STEM Program.
