The Ripken Foundation hosted a virtual STEM training with mentors from Grace Place and Boys & Girls Club of Collier County in Florida. This training provides practical tips and resources our program partners that help them to understand and implement the Ripken Foundation STEM program. Grace Place and Boys & Girls Club of Collier County became our 67th and 68th STEM Centers, as well as our first two STEM Centers in the state of Florida, expanding our STEM reach to 14 states to date! In addition, our program partners got to learn more about the Foundation and all the resources we provide!
The Ripken Foundation STEM Centers are designed for youth organizations and schools to get youth interested in STEM through hands-on learning. Each mobile STEM Center comes fully installed with the latest technology, the Ripken Foundation STEM Center Curriculum Guidebook for mentors, and customizable activity kits that include hands-on games and activities.
