Brief Program Description

There is a myth that STEM programming is expensive, particularly when it comes to funding technology and engineering projects. During this workshop, learn how educators took inexpensive materials and taught STEM programming to low-performing and low-income schools. Participants will build electric circuits with playdough and make batteries using fruit. Taking the “TE” in “STEM” to the next level is simple and fun!
