The Jersey City Public Schools Sustainability STEAM Challenge
Jersey City Public Schools and Jersey City’s Office of Sustainability have partnered to challenge students to identify and solve local issues related to sustainability.
Engaging students in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) is one of the most important factors in preparing students for the jobs of tomorrow. The Jersey City Public Schools Sustainability STEAM Challenge addresses this issue. The challenge offers students the opportunity to be engaged in authentic hands-on experiences that will challenge them to identify, research and solve problems in their neighborhoods. Through this annual challenge students explore the world of design and engineering and are afforded the opportunity to collaborate with experts and present their solutions to their peers and community. Students in every grade level participate.
