investing in the future
Implementing high-quality and collaborative educational programming is challenging for many reasons, one of the most significant is the lack of budget. By investing in GSTEM projects, funders provide a solid foundation for NEEF, community partners, and educators to build experiences that increase students' academic achievement and encourage a deeper appreciation for the environment.
Funders Bring Greening STEM to Life
Supporting GSTEM projects gives students authentic STEM learning while enabling them to use all their senses to explore the world right outside the classroom door while forging connections to the natural world and each other.
NEEF partnered with Samsung, Teaneck Creek Conservancy, and Benjamin Franklin Middle School (BFMS) in Teaneck, New Jersey to help these students make important connections between the health of the river and the community.
Mark Newton, Head of Corporate Sustainability at Samsung Electronics America, explains how the Greening STEM project is part of Samsung's Corporate Sustainability Goals.
