2019-20: PLEASE NOTE, we currently have one full 4th grade lab. Please reach out to volunteer/open more labs in grade 3-6.
STEM scouts is a coed program of Scouting America, for grades 3rd-6th. The focus of this program is to help boys and girls learn about various areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math with hands on projects, activities and field trips. We engage young, budding scientists, foster friendships and collaboration with creative learning experiences. Please check out http://stemscouts.org for more info.
The program runs most of the year (26 weeks) and meets once a week for 90 minutes – day to be defined by your STEM scout leader.
The program is divided in 6-week modules. Modules/topics cover a wide spectrum of STEM, a few examples are: magnetism, archeology, robotics and coding (Makey Makey, Ozobots), bridge structures, urban ecology, community work, and so on. Topics rotate each year to keep students engaged.
Please note: Groups are capped at 10 students. Enrollment of your child is provisional until a parent volunteers to lead for the year. Tuition is $200/child for a school year. The tuition covers all materials and curriculum. The concept is identical to any other cub/boy/girl scout troop, parent volunteers run the program and teach the curriculum provided by STEM scouts.
For questions, email Manue Reynolds, STEM scout leader #1203 at Mathews. firstname.lastname@example.org
