STEM program builds ties between Stanford and East Palo Alto middle school

DESCRIPTION

An innovative course and afterschool mentor program bring lessons from education, design and engineering to a local school. The program complements the  charter school’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) offerings in a low-pressure, afterschool environment. Focusing on teaching design solutions that emphasize empathy, it has reached about 60 EPAPA students over the last three years, with some returning for a second year.
