STEM Club

What

At STEM Club, 3rd-4th graders who love STEM participate in this science-based after-school activity. This builds the students' complex thinking abilities in a fun environment. Adult-supervised and held on-site at local schools


When

Sessions are one hour a week and run for six weeks.


Who

Program is overseen by a teacher coordinator with the help of high school students. We look for student coaches who have a helpful spirit and a desire to teach others, as well as those who love science and other aspects of STEM.  

 

Why

It’s fun! And it’s crucial to develop complex and progressive thinking skills. Kids work together to solve scientific queries. Student coaches benefit in terms of empathy, confidence, and leadership. Participants benefit by increasing their knowledge and problem-solving skills, cementing their interest in STEM, and building relationships with older student coach role models.


How

Our program moves rapidly through activities to keep student attention. Each session we have a short discussion about qualities of good scientists, a scientific problem that the students will have to solve, time for students to break up into groups run by student coaches to solve these scientific problems, and notebooks to write in hypotheses and results.
