STEM Outside The Box (STEM OTB) seeks to
ignite a spark of scientific curiosity in elementary school, middle
school and high school students through critical thinking and
In order to accomplish our goal, we offer short but creative small group camps that inspire students to pursue activities in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM). Our goal is to sow the seed of curiosity early and allow students to delve in scientific, engineering or mathematical inquiry. Our camps are run in a collaborative and non-judgemental environment. Through such activities we hope to identify and support creative and critical thinkers early i.e. by middle school years so that they would feel confident to pursue STEM related activities/fields in future (high school, college, and career).
One of our initiatives is supporting Girls in Engineering And Robotics (GEAR).
STEM OTB actively recruits High School students as support volunteers. We recognize exceptional service to our community by volunteers of our organization by awarding Volunteer Service Cetificate.
