Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math Studies
STEM Literacy is one of the four major initiatives established by the board to improve diversity, equity, inclusion, and obtaining access to science and technology afterschool programs and community events. To achieve this objective we created STEMSCI, STEMTECH, and STEM+ to strengthen what children learn in the classroom and provide additional support with homework in science, math, and technology throughout their education.
Numerous evidence-based research studies have concluded by exposing young children and youth to science and technology at a young age we give them a jump start to explore these areas throughout their education.
The STEMSci Afterschool Program is our biweekly Saturday science engagement and enhancement program. After the school day ends, we provide girls, girls of color, and low income communities high quality science enhancement activities. The Department of Education science standards and other evidence based methodologies are used to construct our curriculum. Through the use of hands-on educational enhancement activities and inquiry-based exploration, we strengthen our students’ enthusiasm and curiosity for the world of science and careers. Students will also receive instruction on the scientific method as they conduct research and oral presentations of their findings. Our volunteers are trained college science majors and professionals who have a passion for working with children and giving back to the community.
The STEMS+ Afterschool Program was established to help students excel in the classroom by providing one-on-one tutoring and group learning activities. We intend to inspire, engage, and motivate young girls to explore STEM careers throughout their education. Volunteers are recruited from our local high schools, two major universities, and colleges, as well as from professional and retiree networks.
We are now providing virtual help with challenging subjects.
This program provides a unique experience for our students, as they can personally work with a tutor well-versed in STEM who will equip them with the skills necessary to improve or maintain academic success throughout their education.
