STU is designed as an approach to education that can support demonstrable increases in the level of scientific and general literacy of the public about current societal concerns related to weather, climate and water, regardless of age, location or prior level of education. It is available to all who have a desire for knowledge on topical, as well as general, issues that can impinge on their lives, jobs and families’ well-being now and in the future. Wireless features of STU education allow for using yet another medium to address a public thirst for information and knowledge. The wireless aspect of an STU makes information readily available to people in spite of the remoteness of their geographical locations or their busy daily schedules. The reality is that most people have some spare time that can be used for informal educational activities.
