Recognizing the importance and need for STEM studies worldwide, IREX initiated a new program in 2016 called the World Smarts STEM Challenge. By connecting high school students from D.C. and Ghana, World Smarts aimed to inspire cross-cultural collaboration in order to tackle global problems through STEM studies. For its pilot year, World Smarts focused on two issues: energy use and hazardous waste & pollutants.
I designed the students' Innovator Guides, two 10-week workbooks — one for each challenge — with relevant activities and resources that would guide the students to their final solutions. I also created various icons and graphics for use within the guides.
