WHAT ARE WE DOING TO HELP OUR COMMUNITY DURING COVID-19?
Gifting Project Empower STEM Kits!
Fall/Winter Efforts: Recognizing the difficulty in conversing with children about COVID-19, we designed a COVID-19 DIY (do-it-yourself) lung model kit that works to empower children with knowledge about COVID-19 and how to keep themselves and others safe during this difficult time. Developed with advice from physicians, child educators, and child psychiatrists from Yale University, the University of Chicago, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, this kit is age-appropriate and designed to empower children and facilitate the conversation between parents and children about COVID-19, all while sparking scientific curiosity. Order the free kit on our "Order Here" tab!
Summer Efforts: Although our after-school and summer programs have been cancelled due to COVID-19, we are still committed to providing kids with an engaging STEM experience. During this time, we will be using our donations to build STEM kits filled with fun and exciting experiments to ship to kids across communities. These kits will contain materials and instructions for several STEM experiments — made by the Project Empower team with love and care. Some sample experiments include balloon-powered cars, balloon rockets, and bouncy balls! We hope our STEM kits can be a source of happiness and excitement for kids during this difficult and uncertain time. Please consider donating to help spread smiles during this time. Thank you!
