The nature is a living organism. It feels the pain. It can suffer just as we do. The humanity has been exploiting it for many centuries. We have always seen the nature as an inexhaustible well of sources only. But now we know that one day sources will be run out. Ruthless exploitation makes a great damage to the nature.

In this collaborative global project, classrooms collect data on a local STEM career they feel is important to their community’s future and contribute its details to a global database.
