What is ZEP Island?

ZEP Island is a STEM learning program based on a scale-model sustainable community of ‘Zero Emissions People’ (“ZEPs”).

To avoid adverse consequences of climate change each one of us has to strive to get as close to ‘zero emissions’ as possible. This opens up a wealth of learning opportunities. 

ZEP Island is about using STEM to design and build a model ‘zero emissions’ environment. The core challenge is to model sustainable scenarios for supporting life, and the aim of the program is to maximise the number of ZEPs you can sustainably support using an A2 (420mm x 594mm) space. The more STEM and design thinking the students apply, the more water, food, energy and shelter they can provide, and the more ZEPs can live on their island.
