  STEM Today Degree Tomorrow  
The STEM Today Degree Tomorrow program introduces 5-8th grade students to careers in the STEM fields. Degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) can lead to success in a variety of careers. The focus of our program is to expose students, especially from low-income families and/or students of color, to STEM programs so that they are more likely to consider college as a choice in order to excel in one of these disciplines.

In this Saturday morning program, students will work in teams to create a project that fulfills a given list of requirements. Through the first four workshop days student teams will design, test, and build the project. Each group will then present their approach on the project to gathered peers and community members. A full day field trip to the Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago completes the program.

The STEM Today Degree Tomorrow program was funded through a Diversity Program Development Initiative Grant from the division of Continuing Education, Outreach and E-Learning of the University of Wisconsin-Extension and private donations in 2009-2010.

In spring of 2011 we received a grant from the AAUW to fund the STEM Today, Degree Tomorrow program for girls in grades 5-8.
