Mayor Steven M. Fulop, the Municipal Council Members and the Office of Cultural Affairs of the City of Jersey City were  proud and honored to recognize Jersey City’s Office of Sustainability and Jersey City Public School’s 2020 Sustainability STEAM Challenge during the Climate Action Flag Raising ceremony on October 19, 2020.

 During the 2019-2020 academic year, Jersey City student teams took climate action at the local level by solving a climate change-related problem in Jersey City. The Kindergarten through 2nd grade students learned about the environment and created flags celebrating the importance of green spaces and sustainable practices. The winning flag design was created by K-2 Emily Masiello of James F. Murray School, PS #38. The design was printed on flags that will be displayed at the winning school, City Hall, and JCBOE headquarters.

Engaging students in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) is one of the most important factors in preparing students for the jobs of tomorrow. The challenge offers students the opportunity to be engaged in authentic hands-on experiences that will challenge them to identify, research and solve problems in their neighborhoods. Through this annual challenge students explore the world of design and engineering and are afforded the opportunity to collaborate with experts and present their solutions to their peers and community. Students in every grade level participate.
