Philly STEM Education for Sustainability - Connecting the Urgent to the Immergent

The Philly STEM Education for Sustainability project invites you to attend our end of year showcase:

Reflections from students and teachers attempting to do "real impact" sustainability work in their communities.

The event takes place on Saturday June 4, 2022 from 9am – noon at Temple University’s Science Education and Research Center (SERC) , 1925 N 12th St, Philadelphia, PA 19122. To register, click here.

Philly STEM Education for Sustainability (EFS Philly) is a PASmart Grant funded initiative based at eleven Philadelphia high schools, where teachers and students have been engaged in a year-long participatory action research and project design process, in collaboration with local community members and organizations. Our goals have been to empower young people to directly address issues of social, environmental, and climate justice in their communities, and make explicit the connections between sustainability and their lived realities. Not so much “environmental education” as making connections between green space and gun violence, or housing insecurity and environmental racism.

The showcase will feature:
1.  Panel of EFS Participants, reflecting on their participation in the program followed by Q&A
2.  "Gallery" walk with students presenting about their process, accomplishments, and challenges
3.  "Raffle" to support local organizations doing sustainability work

Coffee and light refreshments from 8:30 – 9:00 am. There is free on street parking and various pay parking lots near the SERC.
