STEM represents a recent, national focus on those skills all young people should develop so they have the chance to become the innovators, educators, researchers, and leaders who can solve the most pressing challenges facing our nation and our world, both today and tomorrow.
Here is your chance to be a part of this initiative! We need volunteers in each classroom to assist students in completing STEM activities. You do NOT need experience in any of theses disciplines, only the desire to demonstrate the concepts and motivate the students. The activities have already been selected and approved. There will be an informational meeting in the coming weeks to walk volunteers through their selected classroom's activity.
Can't volunteer? You can still be a part of this event by contributing various household items needed for each activity. Donations can be dropped off from June 6-10th in the STEM box located in the front office.
Please contact Deirdre Blasucci at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
“[Science]“[Science] is more than a school subject, or the periodic table, or the properties of waves. It is an approach to the world, a critical way to understand and explore and engage with the world, and then have the capacity to change that world..." - President Obama
The United States has developed as a global leader, in large part, through the genius and hard work of its scientists, engineers, and innovators. In a world that’s becoming increasingly complex, where success is driven not only by what you know, but by what you can do with what you know, it’s more important than ever for our youth to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. These are the types of skills that students learn by studying science, technology, engineering, and math—subjects collectively known as STEM. - US Department of Education
