Encouraging children to use their hands and foster a love for science and math has made the STEM Club a hit at Bradie Shrum Elementary School.
Thanks to a Mahuron Education Grant through the Washington County Community Foundation, BSE third-grade teachers Emily Johnson and Crystal Mikels are able to do more than teach to the test with their students.
The afterschool STEM Club helps students develop their problem solving skills in the fields of computer coding, robotics and other STEM-related topics. The grants were for $347.20 each.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The group is focused on broadening students’ love and interest of these four core areas.
