WORC / Worcester Community Project Center
Boys & Girls Club of Worcester
The goal of this project was to help the Boys & Girls Club of Worcester (BGCW or Club) implement a sustainable after school STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) program. Using the Everything STEM Planning Guide created by the Boys & Girls of America, we completed a STEM Readiness Pre-Assessment, STEM Improvement Plan, and STEM Readiness Post-Assessment. With BGCW staff and active participation of members aged 9-12, we also made immediate improvements through designing and piloting high yield learning activities using the Club's new Lego Mindstorms kits and 3D printer. We created a volunteer guide and recommendations for long term improvements to help sustain the BGCW's STEAM program.
