Steppingstone Scholars, Inc. seeks to provide Philadelphia students access to free, high quality, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education with coursework exploring Robotics, 3D printed robots and an online AP Computer Science Prep course. Our project, the STEM Education Collaborative, is an innovative partnership between Steppingstone Scholars and the University of Pennsylvania to develop and implement a robotics-based STEM curricula and programming that spans 4th grade to college and is focused on reducing achievement access gaps in STEM related fields.
In our Academic Year and Summer programming, students learn how to build robots, along with Java and Arduino computer programming, Physics, Calculus, Trigonometry, and Geometry. Additionally, Steppingstone is also committed to developing curriculum and training opportunities for School District of Philadelphia teachers so that the technology developed is used to support student learning.
