A STEM Education partnership
between General Motors and National Wildlife Federation to support student driven sustainability projects
Through Eco-Green students are exposed to careers in STEM, science, technology, engineering and math, by partnering with local mentors and participating in green STEM projects. These partnerships foster community awareness of sustainability issues and allow students the opportunity to contribute to positive impact. Participation in Eco-Green deepens student, community and teacher engagement in the National Wildlife Federation’s Eco-Schools USA program.

Eco-Green uses the Eco-Schools USA framework to empower students to take global action. Through these investigations, students hone their leadership skills through observation, research, and data gathering using an engineering and design process. Mentors provide a variety of support co-determined at the intersection of the school’s needs and the mentor’s interests, strengths, and availability.
