At STEM Skool, our mission is to ensure that every child, regardless or race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or socioeconomic status, has access to a quality STEM education. Our Community After-School Engineering (CASE) Program helps middle and high school students use science and engineering to solve design challenges in their own communities.
Access to quality STEM education enhances 21st century skills development across all disciplines and affords the future workforce the academic background needed to address a dire shortage of tech talent in the US.
However, despite the many benefits of a quality STEM education, approximately 70% of US students lack science and mathematics proficiency.
The goal of the C.A.S.E. Program is to spark interest, improve proficiency and increase diversity in STEM.
We host three 9-week sessions per year: Fall, Winter and Spring. In each session, we present core science and engineering, alongside global studies, in a fun, engaging and hands-on learning format.
We also invite scientists and engineers from our community to visit with us to share their insight into STEM careers.
Currently, this program takes place in Charlotte, NC. We are also willing to help educators in other cities establish C.A.S.E. Programs in their schools.
Human Anatomy & Biomechanical Engineering.
- What are the major health and safety challenges facing our community?
- Who do these problems most affect, and how would people's lives improve if we solve these problem?
- How can we apply what we know about math and science to the engineering design process to solve these problems?
- Is our solution marketable and sustainable?
- Where else in the world would our solution improve lives, and how could we get our solution to people who live in other communities?
Where does this program meet?
We host this program on your school's or organization's campus. We recognize that transportation often becomes a barrier to participating in STEM programs. Therefore, we come to your location.
How many students are in each group?
Each group is comprised of 6-12 students.
What COVID-19 protection measures are in place?
We will closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the summer and will follow all CDC recommendations for proper distancing and face coverings during indoor and outdoor in-person activities.
