Vision

Our vision is to expand the economic base of the capital region by recapturing the lost potential of at-promise youth in the capital region.

Mission (What)

We believe that the promotion of Science, Technology,Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.) will provide opportunity for at-promise youth in the Capital Region.

 

Fundamental components of the program include: 1) providing a safe environment where students can access STEM concepts and develop insightful knowledge to engage; 2) provide opportunities develop confidence and leadership skills; 3) provide coaching, materials and tools to encourage parents to become informal teachers and supporters of STEM learning; 3) support individualized learning; 4) build and sustain systems of support for ongoing STEM learning and engagement; 5) provide avenues for STEM practitioners(i.e. engineers, scientists, etc.) to convey knowledge to underrepresented youth, families and the community.

 


The DREAM STEAM programming will develop the value, interest and capacity by exploring four tracts of STEM learning. Students and families will engage in hands-on activities that explore light, sound, motion and food sustainability. Through the inventions of Edison and others, participants will see how these early STEM leaders used the repeated trials not as failure, but as steps to move closer to their inventions.

The project incorporates research-based methods shown to increase the intrinsic motivation and engagement of participants. Additionally, the program will allow for the collection and dissemination of data to replicate and scale similar programming to increase the number of underrepresented groups to see involvement in the STEM disciplines as possible career choices, but more importantly to develop and sustain a deep level of inquiry that will be shared with other family and community members.
