We partner with schools and youth serving organizations who want to use STEAM in school or after-school to expose their students to various pathways that can be used to uplift themselves and their community. Students complete community-based projects such as using data analysis to create a more sustainable lunch room or strengthening their creativity muscles as they paint a mural for their school. Our curriculum includes Common Core Standards, NGSS, and Social Justice Standards. Most importantly it teaches students how to take what they’re learning and use it to uplift their school community.
Build 'Em Up is a coding and robotics program for 3rd-5th grade girls and non-binary youth. They use coding and robotics to identify and develop solutions to issues in the community.
Brick by Brick is a health justice program for 2nd-5th grade students. Students learn about horticulture as they cultivate an urban farm and cook tasty and fresh foods. They work together to use these skills and help feed the community.
The Bloom Initiative is a creative design class. Third through sixth grade students learn a variety of skills such as graphic design, photography, and storytelling. They collaborate with one another to use these design skills to identify and address unmet needs in the community.
