What is The ABC’s of STEM Student of the Week?

 

Our kits provide classrooms with a literacy take home bag program around STEM introduction, curated especially for the youngest and most impressionable of ages:  Kindergarten to Second graders!

Each week, teachers announce The ABC’s of STEM Student of the Week to the class.  The student arrives home with the classroom bag of activities to enjoy with their friends or family and records their experiences on their Student of the Week poster.

Students return to school and present to their class about their experience as the ABC’s of STEM Student of the Week.  The following week, another student and family are chosen to be the next ABC’s of STEM Student of the Week.  The process is then repeated throughout the academic year.

Our program features STEM introduction and engagement inspired and created by a full-time working Mom without a STEM background.  The program is structured to not only inspire young learners to spark their natural curiosity about STEM, but also educate parents and families of all backgrounds about the many benefits that come with STEM education and career exploration.

The best part?  All classroom boxes are financially supported and funded by local STEM-industry and businesses, making the program cost free to districts, schools, teachers and families to participate.

Our goal is to provide family engaging and memorable moments around STEM introduction for young students, so when they enter the upper level academic tracks of STEM, it will trigger fond memories from when they were The ABC’s of STEM Student of the Week!

Just as each student is unique, so is their ABC’s of STEM Student of the Week experience!
