Project Infinite Green

about 1 year ago

Project Infinite Green is an afterschool program that immerses students in energy to ignite and engage the next generation of scientists and engineers. It addresses the opportunities and the challenges presented by our increasing demand for safe, reliable and sustainable energy research, production and distribution.  The program ultimately aims to introduce students to the scientific and business aspects of creating clean energy solutions to the challenges we face today. By participating in this program, children will be reminded of the scientific and business aspects of sustaining ecosystems as they conduct their daily routines using energy sources—whether they’re turning on a light switch or riding in a car.  In doing so, they will gain a greater understanding of global citizenship.  Project Infinite Greens strives to become a vital part of the ongoing movement to sustain our planet and all that lives on it for the imaginable future.   Inherently, the program strengthens our local and global communities, support our educators, and provide engaging and inspirational experiences for our students.

Moreover, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education is reinforced by taking local school children on a journey through all of the energy sources we rely on in our modern world. The programs focus on providing practical, interactive experiences guided by professionals within the industry to help students understand the ramifications of everyday actions and decisions concerning energy.   Project Infinite Green uses off-site learning experiences, classroom lab exercises, and technology to connect and encourage students’ interest and build energy knowledge.  Participating students will work with mentors from business, government and higher education organizations that have expertise in energy related topics such as:

  • Energy Production Processes

  • Energy Generation

  • Energy Distribution

  • Energy Policy

  • Energy Research

  • Sustainable Practices

However, it is the students who direct the learning that drives their ability to innovate.

Program Partners include:

  • Congressman Daniel Lipinski–3rd District, Illinois

  • Office of the Governor, State of Illinois

  • Illinois Assistant House Republican Leader Jim Durkin

Science Club

Welcome to the TMS Science Club!

The purpose of the TMS Science Club is to spark an interest in science that allows students to explore and question the subject through hands on techniques

Edible SLIME!



Egg drop Winners

Students constructed a protective holder for their eggs and subjected them to a 10 ft drop that if survived allowed them to move on to a 20 ft drop. These two groups had their eggs survive unscathed!

A connection between what happens in everyday life and real applications will be made at each meeting.  Students will use the scientific method and inquiry skills to accomplish tasks. 


 Activities include:

  •  Maintaining a green environment within our school through our recycling efforts (collection of paper, plastic, and aluminum)
  •  Understanding the scientific method and how it relates to everyday life and careers
  •  Performing safe simulations including dissection, rocketry, energy resources, forensics


In addition, students work as part of a team developing essential communication skills. Often times, in science, new developments and discoveries are not achieved individually. This requires the work and effort of multiple individuals. This club encourages positive team work and thinking outside the box to achieve a common goal. 


 Meetings are held on Fridays in Room 110 from Oct to March according to the schedule below. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact one of the sponsors below.
