Boy Scouts of America
This Program is a nationally-developed STEM curriculum to 50 children in New Haven. Participation is once a week for five weeks. Each session will be 60 minutes.
Outdoor adventure is the promise made to boys when they join Scouting.
Service to others and good citizenship is learned through such outdoor activities as conservation projects, collecting food, building trails and shelters, and conducting community service projects that promote healthy living. Through helping other people, Scouts learn to appreciate how they can share themselves and their blessings to those in need. By giving service to benefit others, Scouts gain a sense of personal satisfaction.
The STEM summer program will feature over 32 science experiments around the themes of chemistry, engineering, robotics, gravity and squishy, gooey fun (Examples of the actual experiments the students will participate in are: Exothermic Volcanoes, Soda Geyser Reactions, Firework T shirts, Design a Parachute – Gravity, Alka Seltzer Rockets, Evaporative Cooling Games, Rover- Programming and coding, Blood Typing, Forensics, Marble Run - Gravity and Physics). The curriculum focuses almost exclusively on hands-on science experiments with adequate time to answer critical thinking questions of "why" or "how."
