Funding Description

The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Regional Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Service-Learning pilot project will promote STEM-based service-learning opportunities for students especially female and underrepresented minorities to increase student interest in pursuing STEM related careers and postsecondary study. STEM content and concepts are introduced in a nontraditional setting, thereby increasing the relevance to the experience of the student. This instructional methodology has been shown to increase academic engagement significantly. A key focus of the Initiative is to better engage participants in the civic lives of their community.
