STEM Ed Announcement: Creating a Green Collar Workforce

UMass STEM Ed Institute Presents: Spring 2015 STEM Tuesday Seminars
 February 17
 Michael Barnett
 Professor of Science Education and Technology, Boston College
 "Seeding the Future: Creating a Green Collar Workforce"
 This recently funded NSF Innovative Technology Experiences for Students
 and Teachers (ITEST) program to implement and study the impact of a
 hydroponic farming project, using solar panels and windmills to help
 power the indoor gardens at Boston's Salvation Army Kroc Center  will engage
 approximately 1,000 students and 40 to 60 teachers at 20 schools. The
 Project will teach public high school students to grow hydroponic fruits
 and vegetables and then sell them at farmers' markets in underserved
 areas of the city.
 STEM seminars are held at 4PM on the first and third Tuesdays of each
 month during the academic year in Hasbrouck 138. Everyone is welcome; no
 reservations are needed, and there is no charge. Parking is available in
 the Campus Center Garage.
