Description

The High School STEM Education Tutoring Program places qualified volunteers in the high school classroom during the school day.  Volunteers follow the teacher’s teaching methods, helping explain concepts to the students and giving them more individual attention.  The program focuses on physics, chemistry, math and biology, and the only requirement to join is a bachelor’s degree (or higher) in science, engineering or business.  If you are interested in learning more about this program, please attend this lunch-n-learn presentation.
