STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)

 

Join our partners in making STEM education a critical part of our daily Club experience for local kids.  We’re bringing this programming to kids who might not have access to it otherwise — ensuring whole new generations are introduced to the possibilities that STEM holds for their future. Boys & Girls Club STEM programs bridge the gap between STEM and real world scenarios focusing on hands on, project based learning for students to explore the different disciplines of STEM helping to build excellent soft skills in the “four Cs”— collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and communication.

The various programs we provide include:  STEM, STEM Ninjas, Vex IQ, E-sports, Club Tech, MyFuture.net.

• Improve Behavior, Self-Confidence, & Overall Well-Being
