Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School (DYRHS) has been pioneering the innovative Global STEM Classroom™ collaboration program since 2011. The concept of the program was created by and implemented at DYRHS under the mentorship of Larisa Schelkin, the Founder and CEO of the Global STEM Education Center.

Every year, about 45 students in grades 8-10 participate in a variety of semester-long courses collaborating with students from different countries including England, France, Mexico, Norway, Russia, and Ukraine. In the session, DYRHS students will present their work done in the four courses:

1. "My Blue Planet" course addresses the quality and availability of clean drinking water around the globe.

2. "The Space Exploration" course addresses scientific, technological, societal, and economic issues surrounding the near-Earth and deep space exploration and a possibility of establishing human settlements on other planets.

3. "The NASA's GRACE satellites and the Climate Change" course is dedicated to the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) program that allows precise observations of ice sheets and climate change from space.

4. "Nanotechnology" course focuses of the revolutionary technology of super-small particles and its application in electronics, renewable energy, and medicine.

The session will be a discussion of the program goals, methods, and results provided from the perspective of a teacher, an administrator, the program founder, and students who will share their authentic experiences in this unique and innovative program.
