A new hands-on environmental STEM enrichment curriculum using the documentary Point of No Return – the gripping story of the first solar powered flight around the world – as a dynamic jumping off point to inspire students to innovate and collaborate towards sustainable solutions.

NOW AVAILABLE – DISTANCE LEARNING ONLINE PROGRAM

In response to current educators’ needs for distance learning programs in this unexpected time of school closures, we have made the Point of No Return film and curriculum easily accessible online for educational use at home.

OUR MISSION

As the world faces the daunting global climate crisis, the film and inquiry based hands-on STEM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) aim to foster creative problem solving and design-thinking around sustainability. Our goal is to spark interest and deepen understanding of renewable energy and climate solutions, increasing environmental literacy and STEM learning for all students, especially underserved schools and low income communities. Ultimately, our mission is to turn inspiration into action – empowering students to harness their imaginations to innovate solutions for a more sustainable world and become the environmental leaders of tomorrow.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The non-profit initiative will distribute a 57 min. educational version of Point of No Return, along with inquiry-based STEM enrichment curriculum, hands-on classroom activities and builder kits focused on renewable energy, sustainability and climate solutions, for upper elementary (3rd-5th), middle school, and high school classrooms across the US and ultimately, internationally. As students tackle design challenges such as engineering a solar powered machine, building a battery, or designing the energy plan for a sustainable city, they will experiment and tinker, try and fail, and imagine creative sustainable solutions. The curriculum, created by our partner Solar One, is tied to Next Generation Science Standards and based in the four C’s of 21st century learning- Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, and Communication – key elements to the success of Solar Impulse’s pioneering zero-fuel flight around the world.

Through foundation grants and donations to this non-profit initiative we are providing the program at no cost to underserved schools that serve low income communities – increasing environmental literacy and STEM learning where it is needed most. Through our Sponsor a School Program, you can join us in this mission by gifting the program via a tax deductible donation to a school of your choice in your community, which also helps us subsidize the program for schools that can’t afford such educational enrichments.
