What is STEMworks AFTERschool?

It’s more than an after school Science Club! The STEMworks™ AFTERschool Program engages elementary and middle school students with fun and interactive STEM curricula. The goal of the program is to provide students and teachers with resources, inspiration, and tools that empower them to improve their community and world.
