Recommendations
How to Start Your Own Community Outreach Program
1.
2.
3.
4.
Partner with a school
Get to know at least one science or math teacher
Understand the teacher’s syllabus
Together try to figure out how to help that teacher
1. Company tours
2. Judge their science fairs
3. Create hands on presentations that demonstrate what’s on the syllabus
1. Presentations should be entertaining
2. Lots of student involvement
3. Presentations fill the entire class period

Recommendations
Transition from Community Outreach to a Formalized State Wide STEM
Program:
• Align hands-on presentations with classroom lessons
• Administrators, Industry and Teachers (AIT) commit to work together
• AIT committee develop multiple hands on technology presentations
• Make them FUN rather than rigorous
• Make them cost effective
• If necessary….. industry teach the presentations to teachers
• Standardize grade specific presentations for ALL grades
• Implement competitive technical after school programs
• First Robotics
• Lego League
• Mechatronics
• Others….
