Scholars After School: STEM-enhanced.

Combining literacy, science, technology and math.

STEM. It’s the buzzword for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. And it’s clear that young learners need more exposure to STEM topics if they are going to be prepared for the 21st century workforce.

 

So at some partner schools, Scholars Unlimited is providing Scholars After School with a concentrated dose of hands-on STEM activities. We weave literacy and STEM together, helping students build their reading skills while developing broader knowledge across STEM fields. Using non-fiction texts helps our scholars build their academic vocabularies and base knowledge within scientific areas.

Our STEM after-school program is enhanced by enrichment partners — The Butterfly Pavilion, Science Matters, and Computer Explorers — that are experienced in delivering content that is relevant and fun for students.
