Our STEAMbotics Academy and FIRST Robotics teams have been busy! We are proud to report we recently participated in STEM Day at the Missouri State Capitol. Members spent the day meeting with lawmakers, displaying and showcasing the program as well as two robotics, and sharing the impact of the program. We also received a grant from Bayer for additional program support and are very grateful for the continued committment to STEM.
One of our Junior Staff members, who is the team captain of one of FIRST teams, was recently recognized by the St. Charles County Economic Development Center at their STEM Breakfast.
In addition, our teams are participating the annual FIRST Robotics Competition over the next three days which is held at St. Louis University. Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County covers all these competition costs thanks to support from our donors and community partners. Thank you for enlarge their world in a meaningful way!

Your support helps our kids succeed.
By Karen Englert - Director of Resource Development
When we look back at 2019, we were able to provide numerous high-need services/programs for our members including:
Over 80,000 meals/snacks served at no additional cost to families
100% of members completed homework at our locations
83% of members demonstrated improved decision-making skills related to substance use prevention
More than this, we maintained a high level of programs to support our members in all areas: academics, physical activity, emotional well-being, and social skills. We know that no single service can do the trick and are proud to provide comprehensive, wrap-around services for our 1,000 members.
Thank you for helping us have another successful 2019 and cheers to 2020.
We are so excited to share amazing news about our STEAMBotics Academy. After a competitive grant process, the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County was awarded two significant grants in recognition our STEM programs.
The first is a grant from NASA (yep, that NASA) which allows us to support our FIRST Robotics teams through competion registration, robotics parts, and added technology. The second grant comes from Red Nose Day and provides for enhanced computer systems including wifi upgrades, new monitors, new tablets and more.
We are so grateful for this support and truly humbled to receive recognition for our efforts. We are proud of STEAMbotics Academy and love to see it grow.
This support, along with your donations, allow us to expose more members to STEM, break down barriers for young ladies, and support our financially insecure members even more. Thank you for all you do!
