Explore and participate in a growing movement to integrate STEM and human rights education to empower young leaders to tackle global issues
This interactive webinar explores paths to increase youth leadership and participation in a growing movement to integrate STEM education with human rights to inspire environmental action.
The first portion of this webinar will be an overview of the benefits of integrating STEM and human rights education through the lens of inspiring youth action on global environmental issues and paths to increase youth participation. The second portion of the webinar will be an interactive discussion where participants will share their views and ideas on integrating STEM and human rights education and methods to increase youth participation in environmental action throughout the process of developing STEM educational programs that inspire youth-led change.
Participants will leave the webinar with an increased understanding of how STEM and human rights education can be used to involve young leaders in addressing environmental issues.
This webinar is coordinated by STEM for Human Rights, a Human Projects program helping to build the next generation of diverse, globally aware leaders in STEM by integrating human rights education with STEM curricula. The Human Projects is a global youth-run nonprofit working through an international network of schools, clubs, nonprofits, and volunteers to build and rapidly scale human rights educational programs that empower young people to make a difference.
This event will be led by Alexandria Brady-Mine, Executive Director and Founder of the Human Projects. Her expertise spans both the human rights and STEM educational sectors. In addition to leading the Human Projects, Alexandria is a mechanical engineering student and was recently selected as a Goldwater Scholar, the most prestigious undergraduate award in the United States for scientific research.
