STEM + POOL is a free classroom curriculum designed for students that uses the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics of + POOL to teach kids about water quality.
Our classroom curriculum explores ways in which design can be used to solve environmental problems and works to empower youth through a real-life example of designers taking initiative to better their city.
Through STEM + POOL, students learn the basics of water quality testing, parameters by which to determine clean water, filtration methods, general architecture and design principles, and how + POOL is using science & engineering to clean the East River and create a recreational swimming space.
Students also have mentorship opportunities with the artists and designers of + POOL who will conduct site visits and hands-on learning activities upon request!
STEM + POOL Meets NYS Education Standards for grades K-12 and is a partnership with New York Sun Works.
STEM + POOL is made possible by S.P.A.C.E. Additional support has been provided by the New York-New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program and the Hudson River Foundation.
