For continued support of two part-time STEM educators who are responsible for developing and implementing their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) initiative at their Lodi and Hackensack, NJ clubs which serve close to 450 young people. They provide year-round programming across the four STEM disciplines, including: Waterbotics; Rocketry; Engineering Concepts; Earth Science Labs and Technology (Computers, Apps). They will work closely with the local school districts, universities, and companies to help them to continue to develop the initiative and provide ongoing resources and support. The goals of the program are to expose their members to STEM-related careers, to increase their school engagement and success, and to prepare them for success in today’s increasingly information-based and highly technological society.
