The Institute for School Partnership introduced STEM Challenges in May to keep STEM learning going for the tens of thousands of homebound students in the St. Louis area. These are fun, easy STEM activities kids can do using typical household items. Cognizant of the digital divide in the region, the ISP partnered with The Little Bit Foundation to distribute free STEM kits and materials to families alongside their school-based drive-thru meal service programs.
On June 1, ISP Executive Director Vicki May joined FOX 2 St. Louis to talk about the STEM Challenges initiative.
To encourage engagement, the ISP asked students to share their STEM creations with us and be entered into a drawing for a $20 gift card. Entries received so far represent a wide swath of St. Louis – from Clayton and Chesterfield to Maryland Heights and St. Louis City, Normandy, and Ferguson.
