SELF is offering a STEM afterschool progran at the Southside Boys and Girls Club. We cover various topics which include environmental science, Nanoscience and technology, engineering, robotics, math, biology, chemistry, physics, programming. The program will focus on elementary and middle school aged children, but we will be training older students to help in the sessions. Currently we are preparing to growi our own garden and studying the science of food.
SELF is looking for someone to assist in classes one night per week, Tuesdays, for 2 hours. Classes run from 3:00 - 5:00, with time allowed for set up and clean up before and after.
This is a fantastic way to make a huge impact on these underserved children for with only a smal amount of time each week.
There will be intital training required for volunteers and a background check is required by Boys and Girls Club. We can set this up as a shared volunteer opportunity if you are unable to hlep every week or for the full two hours.
