Offramp (Juvenile Justice STEM Readiness )
Offramp brings an awareness of STEM careers and concepts to incarcerated youth by allowing them to learn, explore, and mentor under professionals and college students studying in specific STEM fields and arenas. The program focuses on the math and science skills that underlie many of the most lucrative and interesting career fields of the future, like coding, robotics, and mechanical engineering.
Youth participate in classroom programs with hands-on components that turn concepts in engineering, computer programming & robotics into tangible functional knowledge about the subject. Students in the program build Lego programmable robots to accomplish a series of functions. Each one reinforcing the mathematical concepts that underlie the task. We have found this to be the method for engineering students from every age, race, social or economic strata.
STEM Broadcasting Network (SBN)
The STEM Broadcasting Network (SBN) begins a new chapter in education. SBN provides fun, engaging online space for students, and their teachers, to engage in STEM based classes and activities. SBN allows kids from 4th grade to twelfth, to immerse themselves in virtual standards aligned culturally inclusive learning in a variety subjects from Coding classes for 4th graders, Sports Math for 7th graders, Biomed classes for middle schoolers, or Rollercoaster Building in High School. SBN classes are designed to increase all students overall science and math proficiency by engaging students with fun things to do with a built-in formative assessment component, so its easy to watch kids knowledge and and understanding grow.
Our STEM kits engage students in authentic, problem-based STEM lessons with real-world applications. This program puts the STEM skill building practices and the scientific design process at the heart of exploration, imagination and teaching the value of rethinking and supporting multiple solutions.
