STEM Center for Education and Career Development
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new STEM Center for Education and Career Development, a Museum initiative that seeks to prepare students for success by raising the level of STEM education, instruction and career interest and to create a science literate community by increasing awareness of and engagement in STEM.
To accomplish these goals, the STEM Center will offer a number of specialized opportunities to advance knowledge and engagement in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
The goal of each of these programs is to provide firsthand experiences for youth to build self-confidence, sense of self, interpersonal communication and leaderships skills, and to inspire youth by cultivating and furthering an interest in STEM education and careers.
Programs in Process:
- Two-year internships for high school juniors. Students will earn volunteer service
hours, college credit, learn how to build an APP and receive a stipend while
advancing their knowledge in STEM subjects, see attached flyer.
