Club STEM is open to students grades 5-8


February 15, 2011

Students in grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 can now register for Club STEM, a great opportunity to work on science, engineering and mathematics projects with university scientists, college students and high school students.

Club STEM takes place 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., every Saturday beginning April 2 through May 7, with a Showcase Open House on May 21 where students will present their projects to family, friends and the community. Club STEM is located at the ASU Preparatory Academy at 7th and Fillmore Streets in Phoenix.

Fifth- and sixth-graders will build and test the strength of towers, design devices to protect an egg from a lofty drop, create catapults and trebuchets, and more. Seventh- and eighth-graders will build parachutes and kites, and make flying objects to study the properties of flight and to create the most aerodynamic aircraft.

This program is fully subsidized by a grant to ASU. Club STEM is part of STEM In the Middle, an initiative of ASU’s PRIME Center, to increase middle school students’ interest in science and mathematics.
