Please note: We currently have one full 4th grade lab. Please reach out to volunteer/open more labs in grades 3 - 6.
STEM Scouts is a co-ed program of Scouting America for grades 3 - 6. 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 and 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 (day to be determined by your STEM Scout Leader) for 90 minutes.
The program is divided into 6-week modules. Modules/topics cover a wide spectrum of STEM. A few examples are magnetism, archaeology, 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 and covers all materials and curricula. 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.
