Great Lakes Science Center is bringing its STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs to four different City of Cleveland Neighborhood Resource and Recreation Centers this year. This free programming continues the Science Center’s commitment to providing access to those underrepresented in STEM to boost their confidence and transform their future.
Programming begins at the Lonnie Burton Center in Cleveland’s Central neighborhood from July 22-25, with a field trip to the Science Center on July 26. The Science Center will present 20 total days of programming over the course of the next 12 months, with the location moving each quarter to spend a week at a different neighborhood center.
The city is partnering with the Science Center to combat stress and trauma by providing free programming in their resource and recreation centers year-round. The city is providing a range of programming, including STEM workshops, job and career readiness training, ACT/SAT prep, ballet, chess and more.
In addition to the STEM programming, the Science Center will make a family pass available at each of the city’s resource and recreation centers, which families can check out, use to visit the Science Center, and then return for other families to use.
“We inspire students and their families to build critical skills including problem-solving, persistence and perseverance, while engaging in fun STEM activities. We also aim to break down barriers that may prevent families from visiting the Science Center,” said Vice President of STEM Learning Scott Vollmer.
