Recently, Bexar County was given the wonderful opportunity to participate in a National 4-H grant that has been sponsored by Toyota. The goal of the grant is to train teen youth Leaders to become STEM ambassadors (we're calling them "Game Changers") in their communities. Along with this grant, we have received National Youth Science Day kits to administer to these teen leaders as well as some funds for a field trip (once we are allowed to resume contact).
We are looking for motivated kids who are passionate about STEM! This STEM experience does not just encompass robotics. We are looking for child (13+) who enjoys science! We are going to have a career exploration component to this as well. Once these kids receive training, we'd like them to facilitate (using the kit they receive) these same activities with younger children. Our goal is for each Game Changer to engage at least 10 youth before the end of summer. Pretty easy!
