Approximately 250 neighborhood freshmen and sophomores at Senn High School completed the Loyola STEM Challenge to propose ways to reduce energy consumption or produce energy more sustainably for their school. This project served as part of their Design Course, a STEM course created in collaboration with Loyola faculty. Twenty-two undergraduates from Loyola served as online mentors for the students during this challenge. On April 27, the top team presented their project, proposing windmills on the roof at Senn High School, at the Illinois Science and Technology Institute’s STEM Challenge Student Showcase at Motorola Mobility in Merchandise Mart. This project was carried out as part of Loyola’s “Plan 2020: Building a More Just, Humane, and Sustainable World”, specifically working to expand and deepen the partnerships with PK-12 schools in Rogers Park and Edgewater.
