The Problem

The problem our project targets is the exposure of STEM related activities for younger students in grades 4-7. While these activities are provided by schools in certain electives and advanced programs, not all students have the opportunity to participate in these activities. According to a study by Sphero, only 22% of students in the age cluster 5-12 know and understand that STEM programs are available for them. Additionally, their research went on to conclude that having an early exposure of these activities sets up students for bigger success later on. Thus, our project, STEM4Change, empowers to bridge the gap of STEM exposure for the students in our community.

Our Plan

STEM4Change opens doors to STEM workshops and activities for students at a free cost. These workshops are in a variety of subjects in STEM. This includes disease awareness workshops, science competitions, and more. By each activity, we hope to make a change in our community.
