Abstract

In response to a growing national concern about the dearth of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) professionals, the Boys & Girls Club of Worcester, MA have asked us to collaborate in developing an implementable STEM education program. The curriculum, tailored to 10-13 year old youth, aims at fostering interest, understanding, and appreciation of the STEM disciplines. The program provides early exposure and increased appreciation towards the STEM fields through hands-on engagement.
