Curriculum

Exploration into topics and professions related to STEM and STEM Education is central to the community and its weekly class. We ask – what do we learn about ourselves when we teach others? We will engage in the local K-12 school community by teaching families and students those STEM disciplines we are passionate about. We can inspire and make a difference! Our community will delve into current STEM and Education issues and seek guidance from leaders and professionals in related fields. In addition, academic support and guided exploration of careers is provided.
