As residents of major cities learn to understand how to harness ecological solutions and smaller urban areas continue to grow, uncovering sustainable solutions will remain a priority. High Tech High reveals a project-based learning activity that encourages students to work together to develop eco-friendly building models and efficient transportation solutions for urban areas. Students will showcase their findings in their own urban ecology magazine that they will design and publish.

As we try to encourage students to pursue STEM careers, we must arm them with tools that afford greater understanding of these subjects. Encourage students to engage in project-based learning and pursue their STEM interests with more mind-blowing science projects.
