During the school year several programs are offered, to include Coding Classes, and Robotics Team Competition. These programs provide an interdisciplinary approach in targeting youth in grade levels K to 8 through applying science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in an engaging context to develop literacy and the ability to compete in the new economy.
Coding classes are held in the Fall for grades K-3.
Robotics team competition training is targeted for children in grades 4-8 in the spring.
This program is supported in partnership with the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE).
Many of the identified volunteers that support the STEM Initiative are engineers and technicians that are employed by various manufacturing and engineering firms within the Tri-County area. These volunteers have contributed their support to assist a diverse array of youth-oriented activities.
Coding Classes are held in the Fall each year for grades K5-3rd graders. There are 5 sessions that are 2 hours in duration. Children learn to code in using programs such as SCRATCH and TYNKER. Current classes are scheduled for every Saturday in October from 11 am – 1 pm. The cost of the classes is $25., includes a tee shirt and lunch.
