Srividhya “Sri” Sundaram

Using data collection to understand, propose and build solutions to reduce carbon dioxide

2021 STEM Scholar
Livingston, NJ Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy

Sri’s Big Idea: 

Sri’s students will collect data measuring carbon dioxide levels in areas around their school. They will then present that data in an awareness campaign for the community and propose ways to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Part of the assignment will also include students building renewable resource energy power stations.

Interesting Facts:

Sri loves teaching because it nourishes the child within her. Along with teaching science and chairing the school’s Science Department, she also enjoys nature in her hometown.

In her own words: “The best part of my classroom is hands-on-learning which in turn promotes the joy of learning and the thirst to ask thoughtful questions.”
