Samsung Helps Support Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s DIY STEM Programs & Environmental Change
BGCA is excited to partner with Samsung to provide Clubs an opportunity to implement DIY STEM and teach kids about the effects of climate change. BGCA is proud to have Samsung as a partner in STEM education and environmental efficiencies. The skills learned through these two programs will encourage youth to work together, spark kids’ interest in climate change, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and prepare young people for 21st century success.
DIY STEM is a key foundational program in BGCA's STEM pathway allowing Clubs to provide members who not might otherwise have access to STEM experiences with simple, fun, hands-on activities. Geared to youth in grades 4-9, DIY STEM provides exposure to science, technology, engineering and math that is critical during the tween years, when Club members’ natural curiosity drives interest and builds capacity for success in these disciplines.
Climate Superstars in an online environmental contest to teach kids about the effects of climate change. Contest focused on environmental efficiencies and having Clubs take small actions that add up to an overall impact. BGCA will host a Climate Superstars Challenge for some 1,000 BGCA Torch Club members, ages 11-13. Through field trips, hands-on learning experiences, and an online gaming platform, youth will be exposed to programming on topics including: energy conservation, alternative power sources, water conservation, recycling, food waste and sustainability.
