Greenworks:  Student Engineering Projects Fund

Summary

This program funds student engineering projects around the world as part of our Greenworks Global Classroom. Students who participate in the program work with our Global South partner classrooms to engineer tools and equipment (such as drones and microsatellites) to help their sister classrooms carry out their environmental stewardship work. The engineering program works with disadvantaged students in the US Virgin Islands, US, Ukraine, Brazil, South Korea, and Indonesia.

Challenge

Makerspaces are gaining in popularity in the US, but are still relatively unknown elsewhere, especially in the Global South. Additionally, many participants in these spaces long to create things that can have an impact beyond simple hobbying. The environmental stewardship projects that our Global South students develop as part of our Greenworks program require technology and equipment that their clubs, schools, and universities can't afford. This is an opportunity to connect these endeavors.

Solution

This approach provides project design training for disadvantaged students and pairs them with a Global South partner to co-develop an environmental stewardship project. As our Global South partners describe their plans and needs, the engineering teams will be designing and building the tools (for example, drones and microsatellites) necessary for successful completion of the joint project. The program provides drive for hobbying projects and international collaboration skills.

Long-Term Impact

The Greenworks Global Classroom is building a global network of students and teachers who want to make impactful environmental changes in their communities right now. As the program grows, we expect to not only empower youths to change the world around them, but to also help rebuild the educational support system around them to better support their efforts and help them make a long-term impact. We anticipate building a robust community of changemakers and makers/hackers that spans the world.
