Dear Friends,

Welcome to our Earth Day edition! From fostering sustainability in our STEM curriculum to engaging in hands-on science projects that promote conservation, we're dedicated to inspiring positive change for our planet

This month we’ll discuss how FSF encourages our students to engage in environmental stewardship, share how our alumni are using art to build awareness for education equity, explain how you can become a part of Citizen Science, and ask you to share photos of your own green initiatives. 

We’re also excited to announce new in-person classes which will almost double the number of girls in our program next year!

With gratitude,

Joni Bessler

CEO, Full STEAM Forward

Celebrate Earth Day With Us

"Exploring a Tide Pool in Acadia Maine”

Earth Day serves as a powerful reminder of the interconnectedness of all living beings and the delicate balance of our ecosystems. It's a time to reflect more deeply on the impact of human activities on the environment, and to recommit ourselves to sustainable practices that promote the well-being of our planet and future generations.

At Full STEAM Forward, we're dedicated to fostering environmental stewardship and promoting sustainability in our STEM curriculum. From implementing eco-friendly content in our programs to hands-on projects which teach conservation and activism to our students, we strive to inspire positive change to protect the natural world.

This Earth Day, let's renew our commitment to meaningful environmental action while we work together to create a healthier, more sustainable planet for all.

Whether it's a backyard garden, a community tree-planting project, or a window herb garden, every green initiative makes a difference. By showcasing your efforts to nurture and protect the natural world, you inspire others to take action and contribute to a greener, healthier planet for generations to come.

Send photos to info@fullsteamforward.org and we’ll share them with our online network!

Using Art to Express the Value of Education Equity

Two of our alumni students participated in an art contest sponsored by New York University’s Voices in Urban Education. They had a fun time expressing their creative side to communicate the value of equity in education. Creativity can help students learn and apply concepts in real life. We encourage our students to reach their full potential by harnessing the power of creativity to spark meaningful conversations and drive positive change in our communities.
