STEM Scouts is a division of the Boy Scouts of America with both boys and girls enrolled. The local Suffield STEM Scouts lab will be hosting its first end-of-year exhibition night on Tuesday, May 28 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at McAlister Intermediate School.
This program is fully parent-run and provides fun science, technology, engineering and mathematical opportunities for students from grade 3 and up.
This year there were two labs with 30 students, grades 3-5, attending on Monday and Tuesday evenings at McAlister Intermediate. The diverse group included students attending McAlister, surrounding CREC schools, private schools as well as those home-schooled. During the 2018-2019 school year they covered four modules: Flying, Falling and Fluid Dynamics, Meet Edison Robot, Squishy, Gooey Chemistry and Electronics with little Bits for a total of 23 lab lessons.
