Itron, Inc. announced today the launch of an interactive science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curriculum, Resourcefulness: An Introduction to the Energy-Water Nexus. The educational app was developed by University of Texas professor Michael E. Webber, an expert on the water-energy nexus, and Disco Learning Media, an educational consulting firm. Itron is making this educational app available to students globally. The goal of Resourcefulness is to improve water and energy literacy, encourage conservation and resourcefulness, and inspire the next generation of innovators.
Instructors can incorporate Resourcefulness as a resource in their environmental science classes. They can also integrate the learning content directly within their courses using project-based learning exercises and case studies contained within the teacher guide.
The educational app now is available worldwide in the Apple App Store and the Google Play store for iOS and Android phones and tablets. The desktop edition of the application will be available soon. Visit www.stem.guide to learn more.
