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.
The value that STEM Education can have on a young learner reaches far beyond the classroom.
We work with the teaching staff and board of education in each country to integrate our programming.
As students ourselves, we understand the importance of hands-on learning. Our students build rollercoasters, test circuits, create rockets and much more!
Each lesson is taught by a University student specializing in the topic. For example, a coding lesson is taught by a computer science student!
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.
