How They'll Use the Award

Funding will be used towards the construction of the solar-powered Riverview Environmental STEM Center, which will be comprised of a weather station, solar demonstration center, garden, composting and recycling centers. The Riverview Environmental STEM Center would enhance Riverview STEM Academy’s existing year-long STEM curriculum, while giving students the ability to test experiments and perform demonstrations. The Riverview Environmental STEM Center would allow our students to explore environmental issues, engage in problem solving and taking action to improve the environment. This in turn allows our students to develop a deeper understanding of global issues and their impact on the planet, providing them with skills to make informed and responsible decisions to improve the environment.
