Samsung Helps Support Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s STEM Programs.
STEM Grants Help Local Clubs
In 2014, Samsung and Boys & Girls Clubs of America entered into a partnership to spark kids’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and prepare young people for 21st century success. BGCA is proud to have Samsung as a partner in STEM education. The skills learned through Building Blocks will encourage youth to work together and invent creative, engineering-based solutions for community needs.
BGCA is excited to partner with Samsung to provide Clubs an opportunity to implement DIY STEM and administer the staff and member survey. The assessment tools created by the support of this partnership will provide valuable feedback to the member experience in the DIY STEM program, offer an opportunity for refinement of program content, and provide insight into member interests as we look to create additional modules.
In 2017, 25 Clubs will each receive 10 Samsung Tablets and a grant for $8,000 to support their STEM program efforts. Samsung’s partnership will provide DIY STEM workshops, so Club staff feel confident, capable and empowered to speak to best practices in STEM programming, assessment and evaluation.
