STEM Water Project
The Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County (BGCSTC) is committed to closing the opportunity gap in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics with innovative and creative programs, activity ideas and resources for the youth we serve. After-school and summer learning environments provide unique opportunities to advance STEAM knowledge and increase interest in STEAM-related careers. Many of the BGCSTC members will not be exposed to the STEAM process without BGCSTC help. There is little or no opportunity for them to invest in the needed experiences to develop the desire to pursue a STEAM career. Using a cross-displinary approach that channels young people's natural curosity the BGCSTC's STEAM program will empower youth to create new solutions to real-world challenges. This project-based approach developes critical thinking, problem solving and other 21st century skills that will become imperative to realize success in the STEAM workforce and beyond. By having our members participate in these activities they will become better prepared for a gainful future in the STEAM related workforce that has become the leading sector in job related activities. Thank you for being a part of this successful endavor.
