Everyone is looking for different ways to teach STEM, why not teach STEM integrating current environmental problems? The aim of the project is to engage participants in E-STEM also called as GREEN STEM which focuses on providing in depth science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Therefore, the project aims to lead the students solve local community challenges. Integrating environmental education into STEM learning and transfrorming it E-STEM makes the project different from the other project that were done before. This will lead students to learn, experience, and help solve local community challenges through a combination of environmental education, environmental science topics and issues, citizen science activities.
While building suspension bridges using simple or recycled materials or drawbridges with Lego pieces and a motor, the students will develop a set of thinking reasoning and creative skills. Making original mechanisms like gripper, projectile launcher or walker leg ,they will focus on basic principles of physics, structural, and mechanical engineering.

This is the main code to program our mechanisms and sensors:
