Today, April 22, 2022 is Earth Day. In honor of this year’s theme “Invest in our Planet,” the STEM Division hosted a series of events this week.


Science in Action kicked off this week’s Earth Day celebration on Tuesday, April 19th, through a film screening and discussion, facilitated by Dr. Susanne Schubert. Twenty-five students and participants engaged in conversation surrounding the importance of water quality and what we can do in our local communities to ensure equitable access to clean water in our homes.


Landon Smith, the Sustainability Coordinator, and members of the District Office’s Sustainability team, Georgia Roden, Evan Christo, and Kimiya Khoshkhou, hosted tables in the Quad on Wednesday, April 20th, during Skyline’s College Hour, which drew over 50 students and staff. The office provided learning opportunities for students to learn more about the community benefits and effectiveness of alternative non-electric or gas powered cookers. This also gave students the opportune moment to ask questions on a variety of sustainability topics and connect directly with members from the district office’s sustainability team.
