STEM Education Grant
The Gulf Coast Exploreum delivers hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education to local students through stimulating activities.
What do Einstein and DaVinci have in common today? These two math wiz geniuses live on to inspire school children to dream of inventions of their own when they participate in classes at the innovative science center.
With support from a grant from the Foundation, the Exploreum presented “Da Vinci Machines, The Original Machines Exhibition” and an interactive workshop. Visitors and students along the Gulf Coast flocked to participate in this unique opportunity. There were over 19,000 visitors with 3,800 of these visitors being low-income or at-risk youth from Mobile and Baldwin counties.
Workforce Training at an Early Age
Students designed, assembled, and built creations through activities which covered a series of topics from flying machines to bridges to robotics.
Through our collaborative effort, we hope to spark an interest among our youth to explore STEM-related careers. These bright minds will one day ignite our community as productive citizens of our workforce. And many of their dreams will come true.
