Representatives of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware have done in-depth training to learn important skills that bring science, technology, engineering and mathematics - STEM - education to life year-round.
Delmarva Power has partnered with Discovery Education to launch the Delmarva Power STEM Club, which will provide STEM curriculum to facilitators of Boys & Girls Clubs on educationally relevant, evergreen content and activities targeting grades five through eight with a focus on energy and urban infrastructure. The training sessions were conducted Aug. 26 at the Delmarva Power Conference Center.
“Our partnership with Discovery Education will provide STEM education to the area Boys & Girls Clubs which will then provide this vital information to the young people who have aspirations of a career in the STEM field,” said Gary Stockbridge, Delmarva Power Electric region president. “Enhancing students' creativity, empowering them through knowledge and helping them to prepare for education and career opportunities is our goal.”
The Delmarva Power STEM Club is a dynamic series of standards-aligned STEM curricula designed to engage students in science, technology, engineering and math. Created in collaboration with leading educators, the STEM Club features hands-on and virtual labs, engineering challenges, digital investigations, videos and career connections, all designed to immerse kids in the grand challenges of science set forth by the National Academy of Engineering.
