Using STEM Technology to develop action plans for a healthy Detroit.
Project Overview – Fellows Ron Simpkins and Torrey Henry at Wayne State Volunteers, Administrators and Coaches have created a plan to develop a STEM-oriented after-school program in the 21st Century Learning Centers for middle school students in the 2013 -2014 school year. The project’s client is the Housing Authority who will consider public health and green building strategies in the context of Hope VI public housing. With support from college students and civic and community leaders, youth will develop plans to address issues that impede a healthy Detroit and use technology to formalize and communicate plans with the broader community.
