Online STEM Curriculum & Mentoring Supports Every Kid in a Park Initiative

Curiosity-machine-screenIn support of the Every Kid in a Park initiative, this virtual STEM curriculum & mentoring program encourages kids to build engineering design challenges inspired by nature.

Iridescent, an education nonprofit with a mission to bring science and engineering to underserved children and their families, offers a free online STEM program full of hands-on projects meant to inspire kids to “imagine, invent, and engineer” both at home and at school.
