Caleb STEAM Hub
HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
By 2030, the international community has agreed to ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including global citizenship.
The Caleb STEAM Hub is established to inspire, promote and celebrate the innovative ideas and creativity of the CBIS students and to contribute to contemporary global issues as informed and responsible global citizens.
How does your innovation work in practice?
The project focus has been Sustainability, Advocacy and Recycling to tackle the issues of Climate change (SDG 13) and to protect the lives on our planet, Earth. Recycling is one of the most practical ways of taking action for the survival of our planet.
Their works includes paintings, sculptures and 3D installations art from recycling to advocate against plastic pollution in the oceans; they created two exhibitions, virtual and physical to evoke thoughts and interest of viewers to join them on the mission to put an end to the menace of plastic pollution. They have also championed the cause of tree planting initiative through recycled 3D installation Art and have conducted tree planting events to commemorate the International Day of Forests in order to promote the tree planting culture.
They have also invented Eco-friendly Reading Table-Lamp through recycling which were donated to school girls in communities with poor access to stable electricity to enable them to study at night.
How has it been spreading?
They took their campaign beyond the shore of Nigeria and they exhibited it and won art awards at the Natural History Museum, London. They won David Shepherd Award with their 3D recycled project (Tree planting advocacy) in 2020 and 2021, and received the Certificate of Adoption of an endangered black Rhino named Inka habited in Namibia. For two years now, they have helped to protect the future of the endangered black Rhino, Inka.
They want to continue to inspire innovative teaching and improve on the quality of art education in communities and make more global influence in education; and they plan to someday build a grand STREAM Hub for international exchange program with scholarships for children from low-income communities.
If I want to try it, what should I do?
They will need a working space, a store to keep all their recycling materials, and designing tools. We will be ready to share our prototype with them.
