The Y is hosting an event titled “DEVELOPING YOUNG PEOPLE THROUGH STEM” with a focus on supporting children’s unique youth development journeys. The Education and STEM programs offered aim to provide an early introduction to various concepts, teaching science, technology, engineering, math, and more through creative play. This initiative sets a foundation for success in both school and life.
The STEM activities offered during this event, occurring every 3rd Saturday of each month from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM, provide children with valuable skills. Participants have the opportunity to learn problem-solving, develop critical-thinking skills, become comfortable with failure and trying again, work successfully in teams, and build self-confidence. Moreover, engaging in STEM activities allows kids to envision themselves in future STEM careers. It’s a recurring opportunity for young minds to explore and grow in a supportive learning environment.
