Expand this successful program to reach more elementary and secondary students

Your address shouldn't limit your opportunities! But low-economic status is the number one barrier to STEM with a significant factor being the limited access to out-of-school opportunities that spark interest and foster identity development in STEM. 

Please use the GIVE NOW button above to make your tax-deductible gift to support this JMU innovation. 

In January 2021, the STEM Center partnered with Boys & Girls Club of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County (BGCHR) to identify an impactful and sustainable approach to removing this barrier in our community.  By developing an innovative STEM curriculum and working with talented and dedicated JMU students, we launched an afterschool program that provides BGCHR children with weekly, year-long, and high-impact STEM experiences. After piloting this program with three of the seven BGCHR clubs over a two-year period, the JMU STEM Center is now poised and energized to expand this enriching opportunity to all seven clubs reaching 450 children each year.
