Chapters

General Info

STEM & Buds after-school chapters consist of 12, hour-long sessions for elementary and middle school students--from public schools to community centers to transitional homes--across the country. At each youth-led chapter, younger students are paired with a mentor, where these relationships often last far beyond our programs. After three sessions of locally-based lessons with applicable discussions and challenges, each student begins to ideate and develop their own science-based social projects for the remainder of the program. At our program conclusion, students from all STEM & Buds chapters in the region come together to communicate their work, connect with peers, and celebrate their achievements.

Activities

Whether it be designing climate-conscious public transport at our Florida chapters to analyzing threatening biodiversity crises in our Turkey region, our curriculum is community-specific, lending itself to relevant and authentic learning. Throughout the years, we have had the privilege to see incredible projects from our kids, who research everything from creating feasible water filtration devices to coding a studying tool for students with ADHD.
