Millions of kids lack access to summer learning programs, putting them at a significant disadvantage at the start of each school year. That’s where the Boys & Girls Clubs come in – to fill the gap and keep young minds active during the summer break. Nationwide, our Clubs are the leading providers of out-of-school time, and research shows that out-of-school programs like those at our Clubs are effective in stimulating youth interest in STEM-related careers.
With the help of Samsung, the in-Club DIY STEM program serves as the entry point for STEM learning at Clubs, connecting youth ages 9 to 12 to science themes via experiments and observations that focus on everything from the food they eat to items they encounter every day.
This summer, we’re taking the in-Club program and making it available to everyone – because an engaged and active mind can make all the difference when school comes around again. Download and share our summer #STEM experiments.
