St. Philip the Apostle Catholic School

A National Young Innovators Industry Pipeline School



EduSerc, in partnership with GreeNEWit, designs for schools a Young Innovators Green STEM Residency Program (GSRP), where real engineers, corporate professionals and mentors develop a structured year-long industry enrichment program that occurs either weekly or bi-weekly to train an entire school on STEM concepts to solve environmental challenges. 

Aligned as an industry application component to the Common Core, EduSerc's residency program serves the whole school (i.e. students, teachers and staff) to help provide supplemental skill development, professional development and industry exposure to connect students, parents and the community with industry concepts in STEM.

Our Green STEM Residency Program concentrates on the following:

  • Industry Exposure:  Provide a formal and interactive introduction to STEM / Green Careers.

  • Skill Development:  Implement periodic training for students in technical and professional areas.

  • Project-Based Learning:   Orchestrated by industry professionals in STEM fields, host a semester or yearlong STEM project for the school to reinforce leadership and teamwork in academics.

  • Industry Applications:  Host real engineers to build a real GREEN technological solution for your school that will be designed, implemented and lead thru by the bi-weekly in-class instruction of engineers.

  • Personal/Professional Development:  Embedded resume-building experiences and leveraged training for students, teachers and staff.
