We are a group of Concordia faculty and students who love science, technology, engineering and math, and want to share our passion for these subjects with children and youth. We believe that STEM is for everyone, and run outreach activities to engage with students of all levels and from all backgrounds.
Our members include Clara Scattolin, Luz Adriana Monsalve, Lyes Kadem, Hoi Dick Ng, Carole El Ayoubi, and Amanda Clarke.
We have developed a range of programming and implemented various curricula in different educational contexts, including underserved communities.
At the elementary level, we have taught coding and robotics to young children, and developed a multi-level curriculum in computational thinking and engineering. We also collaborate with les Scientifines, a social services organization promoting STEM to girls from ages 8 to 17 from underprivileged urban areas in Montréal.
In the future we seek to create an online platform where schools can register for our program and request in situ activities led by our team members.
Why we need your help
There is no better way to learn than by doing – by picking up, taking apart and reconstructing small robots, machines and other scientific devices. For this reason our primary need is in supplying equipment and materials for our various outreach programs.
With your support we can equip young learners with the tools and devices that make hands-on learning of STEM subjects engaging and rewarding.
Help inspire a passion for STEM subjects among elementary and secondary students in Montreal.
