SFAz's Afterschool STEM Clubshttp://www.sfaz.org/stem/network?subid=115569
Our STEM Club model, supported by JPMorgan Chase, targets middle and high school Title I schools in Tucson, Phoenix and Flagstaff. This informal education, with a focus on at-risk populations, is having an impact: More than half the students who originally expressed interest in non-STEM careers now say they plan to pursue a STEM profession.
Our STEM Club model is unique in Arizona. It includes interdisciplinary activities that reinforce and accelerate classroom learning through advanced, hands-on activities that demand critical thinking and use of technology. STEM Club student leaders determine specific activities each semester, including competitions with peers, community service projects, college visits and career exploration.
