Adventure Club @ Silver Rail: Special STEM Beyond School Program

The High Desert Museum and Camp Fire were awarded a "STEM Beyond School" grant for the 2016-2017 year with the aim to reinforce STEM concepts students are learning in school and to broaden access to out of school opportunities for all students by targeting under served youth.  In this program, we will serve 30-40 kids with 70 hours each of STEM specific programming (as well as at least 30 more hours of leadership and service programming.)

We will hold afterschool Camp Fire Adventure Clubs at four schools: Bear Creek, Jewell, Juniper, and Silver Rail. Half of the weekly club meetings will be used with STEM specific activities run by both The High Desert Museum and Camp Fire.  In addition, we will have 6 free, full day, off-site STEM experiences during no school days only for members of these clubs.
