An Aligned curriculum Supplement, Web-based Learning platform, and Professional Development

STEMhero is a website and curriculum that empowers students to collect and analyze their electricity, natural gas, and water consumption. Through the program, students create a baseline of their home and/or school's consumption; then, they decide on and measure the impact of efficiency behaviors and technologies. The students' findings of which efficiency practices worked best are shared with family and the community.

 

Hands-on STEM skill & career readiness

Project-based exploration at school and at home centered on and motivated by student's own utility data.

All students participate: apartments & houses, all income levels, any municipality, smartphone and tablet ready -- but not required.
