Eleven years ago, two University students recognized a lack of core STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) within Elementary Schools in the heart of New York. Together, they founded START (Students, Teachers, and Researchers Teach) Science.

 

Today, START Science has expanded worldwide, partnering globally with University Students in Canada, the United States, and Africa to bring hands-on STEM learning to elementary students in low-resourced communities.

About Us

Microscope

The value that STEM Education can have on a young learner reaches far beyond the classroom.

Global
We work with the teaching staff and board of education in each country to integrate our programming.
Hands-On
As students ourselves, we understand the importance of hands-on learning. Our students build rollercoasters, test circuits, create rockets and much more!
Personalized
Each lesson is taught by a University student specializing in the topic. For example, a coding lesson is taught by a computer science student!

HOW IT WORKS
We partner with University students globally to teach in under-resourced elementary schools, at no expense to the schools. The lessons and experiments, called modules, are conducted with a “START Leader” for every 4 students, allowing for individualized attention and guidance. The modules are created with teams of University students in each STEM-related field, lending access to University networks and modern learning.
 
In a recent study of START Science programming, students enrolled with us showed 22% higher overall positive attitudes toward STEM than a class without START.  Over the past decade, we have expanded from our origin at Yeshiva University to form 9 chapters around the world, serving more than 100 schools at multiple grade levels.

Student and Volunteer Testimonials

You could have fun but at the same time you are gaining a lot of knowledge by just doing, more than just reading out of a textbook! It made a big difference, because we got all the focus from one person, rather than our teacher having to walk around the room telling us exactly what to do.
