What is our Mission?
Tara Oaks Elementary’s STEM Club is dedicated to fostering all students’ innate curiosity and joy of discovery by empowering students to be independent problem-solvers with an emphasis on the integration of STEM in collaboration with active parental and community support.
What will I do in STEM Club?
Each week, you will be given a real world problem in which you will work cooperatively with a group to create a solution. You will test your idea, revise it, and then present it to the group.
When will STEM Club meet?
