Forum to Advance Minorities in Engineering, Inc.’s (FAME, Inc.) STEMulate® Change Outreach Initiative is currently in the midst of Open Enrollment for our 2019 Summer Program! Open Enrollment is taking place from 2/1/2019 until 4/5/2019. FAME, Inc. accepts New Student Applications for STEMulate® Change students rising into grades 4 to 6. A student’s rising grade is defined by the grade level they will enter into at the start of the school-year in the fall of 2019. Returning Student Applications are reserved for students who have previously participated in the STEMulate® Change Summer Program, and are rising into grades 5 and 6. Summer Programming will begin on Monday, 6/24/2019 and conclude on Thursday, 8/1/2019. Participating students will attend six consecutive weeks of programming from Monday to Thursday, for 7 hours per day (8am to 3pm) at John Dickinson High School in Wilmington, Delaware. Participating students are provided with daily Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) instruction, Project Based Learning (PBL) opportunities, meals, and bus transportation.

In addition to Open Enrollment, the STEMulate® Change Spring Sessions have been a huge success! Four school sites are operating at Mote Elementary, Baltz Elementary, Heritage Elementary, and Thomas Edison Charter School. Spring classes began the week of 3/4/2019 and will finish with a final Culmination Ceremony on 4/29/2019.

For students rising into grades 7 to 10, Summer Programming will begin on 6/24/2019 and conclude on 8/1/2019. Participating students will attend six consecutive weeks of programming from Monday to Thursday, for 7 hours per day (8am to 3pm) at John Dickinson High School in Wilmington, Delaware. Meanwhile, students rising into grades 11 and 12 will receive the incredible opportunity to live on campus at the University of Delaware’s College of Engineering for the Summer Residential Program which begins on 6/23/2019 and finishes on 7/19/2019. During this time, participating students reside on campus Monday to Friday to engage in four consecutive weeks of college level courses designed specifically to prepare them for the rigors of pursuing a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) related degree and/or profession. The deadline for applying for the Summer Residential Program is 3/22/2019.

Throughout the Summer of 2019, FAME, Inc. students will be engaged in over 140 hours, per student, of rigorous Problem Based Learning (PBL) lessons in the academic areas of English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, Technology, and Science Lecture & Lab. In addition to academic learning, students will also have the opportunity to visit local industry leaders to become emerged and introduced to real life STEM applications and careers. With the support of FAME, Inc.’s academic staff, students will build upon prior knowledge gained from previous sessions and work together in cooperative groups to learn, design, and create projects using various engineering techniques and 3D printing!

2018 Fall & Winter with STEMulate Change!

Group Shot!
Group Shot!

Forum to Advance Minorities in Engineering, Inc.’s (FAME, Inc.) STEMulate® Change Outreach Initiative provides Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) learning opportunities for students in grades K-6. Using nationally accredited curricula highlighting females and other underrepresented American and Global Icons, STEMulate® Change engages youth in Project Based Learning (PBL) methods which motivate students to increase engagement in STEM subjects and build skills to pursue STEM related careers. During the Fall/Winter of 2018, nearly 100 STEMulate® Change students have been engaged in rigorous PBL lessons that promote hands-on activities and STEM learning!

Fall/Winter 2018 sessions operate in New Castle County and include four Wilmington, Delaware schools: Thomas Edison Charter School (TECS), Heritage Elementary School, Mote Elementary School, and Baltz Elementary School. Sessions began on 10/29/2018 and ran through 12/20/2018. In total, FAME, Inc. offered 59 sessions of STEM programming. Sessions are typically 1-hour in length and are held two times per week for seven weeks.

FAME, Inc. is highlighting several of our 4th and 5th grade students from TECS. Students are engaged in STEM learning via a “Sink or Float” experiment. During this experience, students were tasked with making predictions as to whether or not different ordinary objects will float. Objects tested for mass index include: fruits, vegetables, plastic ware, and bottles filled with varying amounts of water. FAME, Inc. is happy our students were able to have such a fun and hands-on learning experience. We are greatly looking forward to 2019 and would like to wish everyone from our Global Giving family a Happy Holiday and New Year!
