We are committed to closing the opportunity gap in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) with innovative and creative programs, activity ideas and resources for Clubs and the youth they serve. After school and summer learning environments provide unique opportunities to advance STEM knowledge and increase interest in STEM-related careers. Using a cross-disciplinary approach that channels young people’s natural curiosity into the design process inherent in the arts, our STEM programs empower youth to create new solutions to real-world challenges. This project-based approach develops critical thinking, problem solving and other 21st century skills critical to success in the STEM workforce and beyond.
