The St. Elmo Brady STEM Academy is an educational outreach program targeted at underrepresented fourth and fifth grade students. In this presentation Joseph Gamez, Program Director, will give a brief history of Brady STEM Academy and reflect on his experiences doing STEM outreach--particularly its impact on students and their families as well as on himself.
This talk will describe the vision and recent activities of the Institute for Sustainability, Energy and Environment (iSEE) for achieving excellence in interdisciplinary research, teaching, and outreach in sustainability, energy and environment. It will discuss ways for the campus community to be involved in activities related to sustainability and present a preview of ongoing efforts and upcoming events.
Our campus's newest institute is the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and the Environment (iSEE), which has three foci: research, education & outreach, and campus sustainability. Mr. McCall will give an overview of iSEE, a look at how well our campus is meeting the targets set out for 2015 in the Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP), and a vision of how our campus will set concrete plans in place to meet our long-term sustainability goals, including carbon neutrality by 2050.
This presentation will highlight opportunities for collaboration with Extension and the State Water Survey.
The DigiFab group will describe what happens in a FabLab and what they plan with DigiFab. DigiFab will act locally by engaging 6th-8th grade students from the Don Moyer Boys and Girls Club (DMBGC) in a year-long participatory learning experience at the Champaign-Urbana Community FabLab.
