Winter Holidays Season STEM Outreach for Neurodivergent Kids
December 16, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
IEEE-SIGHT OEB is hosting a STEM event for neurodivergent kids. The event will provide neurodivergent kids and their families and opportunity to enjoy Winter themed STEM activities and experiments, celebrating the season while learning about STEM in an inclusive environment.
The event is scheduled to take place at the Mindcraft Academy in San Ramon, in partnership with E-Life Program of the Bay Area Christian Church. The Bay Area Christian Church's E-Life Program has received awards for their inclusive support for neurodivergent kids and families.
IEEE-SIGHT is honored to kick-off this E-STEM program with partners that are having an impact in the community. We are anticipating to have about 20-30 kids with their parents.
Some activities will include building circuits to light up Rudolf's nose, Giving the Grinch a heart using Boyles Law , Making Magical Ice Towers using the laws of Thermodynamics, Make Hologram Snowflakes etc.
As you all might know, often times neurodivergent kids are marginalized and excluded from high paying majors like Engineering. This Winter E- STEM event hopes to provide an inclusive environment in STEM for neurodivergent kids and their families and make them feel some of the winter holidays love and cheer.
