Young Engineers Club: STEM Education in After School programs
Delivering STEM Education Through Robotics
Need for STEM Education 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.
What is Young Engineers Club? Young Engineers club is an initiative by SMARTS Club which encourages kids’ participation in STEM and Robotics. After School programs offer 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.
