Indiana State University students teach Cub Scouts about scientific methods

News

Local Cub Scouts and college students are partnering in a program that offers something for both. Non-profit leadership students at Indiana State University put their program development planning to the test this week teaching kids about STEM. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. It’s a new youth development program series at the Terre Haute Children’s Museum. Students used the fall semester to plan out a stem program and then used the spring semester to put it into implementation. The kids learned about scientific methods while at the program.

Lexie Parrot, a student with the STEM program, said “we’re trying to tie in lots of games and activities and hands on learning for them so they can have a good time and not just school part two so they can have a fun program.”

You can catch the last day of the series April 11th at the museum from 4 to 7 P.M. The grand finale will will space derby class from 3:30 to 8:30 P.M. April 12th. Kids who attended previous classes are welcome the rest of the week.
