We introduced STEM Challenges in May to keep STEM learning going for the tens of thousands of homebound students in the St. Louis region. Cognizant of the digital divide in our community, we partnered with The Little Bit Foundation to distribute free STEM kits and materials to families alongside their school-based drive-thru meal service programs.
The STEMpact initiative was highlighted on FOX 2.
So far, 1,500 STEM kits have been handed out to families in the St. Louis area. To encourage engagement we asked students to share their STEM creations with us and be entered into a drawing for a $20 gift card. We’re happy with the submissions we’ve received. They represent a wide swath of St. Louis – from Clayton and Chesterfield to Maryland Heights and St. Louis City, Normandy, and Ferguson.
