STEM/STEAM Program

The ultimate goal of STEM education is to encourage students to take an interest in STEM subjects at an early age.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math

LeAp’s STEM programs focus on building basic science concepts in students by using hands-on, activity-based instruction, and aligning all lessons and activities to the national STEM Standards. In a time when city-wide budget cuts are forcing schools to eliminate their hands-on lab sciences, Leap’s STEM program enables schools to bring the lab sciences back into the classroom. Our STEM programs have a lasting impact, as students show on pre to post-tests scores a gain of 18% in science skills and knowledge. Also, teacher evaluations indicate that 87% of them replicate the STEM programs on their own.
