(WTNH) — Being a boy scout is a rite of passage for so many boys because of the life lessons they learn. With this new after school program call STEM scouts, they can learn a thing or two about science and girls can get involved too.
The acronym STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math. This program is being offered in specific communities in Connecticut through the 2015-16 school year and is avaliable for boys and girls in grades three through 12.
The vortex is a mobile lab that can be taken anywhere to provide children and young adults with inquiry based STEM activities. It comes fully equipped with both computer based and hands on STEM activities, 2 microscopes, 4 monitors, a telescope, and much more.
To see one of the labs conducted and to learn more, you should check out the video above.
