Robotics: Young Engineers Club

What is Young Engineers Club? Young Engineers club is an initiative by SMARTS Club which encourages kids’ participation in STEM and Robotics. Frisco After School Care programs offers both additional time and the opportunity to diversify the ways that students experience STEM learning. After School care programs complement and supplement school-day learning and are well-positioned to engage and motivate participants. By offering innovative hands-on, project-based learning, STEM fields come alive for youth.

Delivering STEM Education Through Robotics

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math based education for kids. Schools can’t tackle this issue by themselves. Nearly 80% of future careers will require some STEM skills. A stimulating STEM education is essential for developing the analytical, problem-solving and critical thinking skills central to academic achievement and workforce readiness in the 21st century.

Leadership for Life Public Speaking & Debate

As a teacher I have seen kids being reticent and hesitant about going onstage or stand in front of a group. Lack of confidence and fear of judgment lead to kids shying away from public speaking and can even hurt their socialization skills. By introducing children to public speaking at a young age, Frisco’s Smarts Club trains children to use the necessary tools that achieve success in boldly entering into the colleges of their choice as well as in gaining employment in their chosen field.

Leadership for Life Public Speaking & Debate can assist with:

  • Removing stage fright – practice that removes self-doubt and nervousness
  • Developing planning skills – building a platform, despite the way our brains develop
  • Build confidence – gaining self-worth through the attention of an audience
  • Power to persuade – learning to appropriately voice & support opinions
  • Being a leader – adopting the power of oration lie great leaders
