To provide engaging and accessible STEM activities In the wrong hands, science can be dry and confusing. But presented in a different manner, science is exciting and inspiring. We aim to bring science to life for our students, especially those with limited educational opportunities.
To promote critical thinking and problem solving Critical thinking is the most basic, yet also the most essential, aspect of science. Yet this skill does not always come naturally! We encourage our students to critically engage and explore the world around them.
To promote confidence and general well-being We go beyond "traditional" STEM activities to engage with subjects such as nutrition and psychology. With healthy bodies and healthy minds kids can be free to learn, question and create.
To change ideas about who can be a scientist Representation matters. Here we look to the FermiLabproject for inspiration. Through our presenters, volunteers, and science history activities, we aim to show the diverse group of people who've contributed to STEM knowledge.
Science Delivered is a mobile lab that brings the field trip to you! We provide a range of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) classes for elementary school students. All activities are carefully picked and created for maximum engagement and learning. Science Delivered is a labor of love and founded on the principle is that STEM education is beneficial for all students, whether they grow up to work in business, a trade, policy, science or technology. Understanding science builds confidence and critical thinking.
