Detroit PAL partnered with Murphy’s Law for a program themed “STEMulating the Future” to give kids hands-on experiences in science, technology, engineering, and math. The program took place on Friday, May 13th at Detroit Palmer Park Academy.
Approximately 50 third to fifth grade boys and girls participated in this program. They learned STEM components while building a propulsion car from raw materials. The program also aimed to connect and teach leadership, life skills, team-building skills, and discussions of higher education opportunities and career pathways.
“We are excited to have this kind of access and opportunity to share our hands-on approach to young people who are learning how to incorporate STEM in their daily lives,” said Murphy’s Law CEO Toine Murphy, “STEM education is active and focuses on a student-centered learning environment. Students engage in questioning, problem solving, collaboration, and hands-on activities while they address real-life issues.”
This partnership gave PAL another opportunity to improve our participants academic excellence. We were very excited to work with them on this pilot project and hope for more collaboration in the future!
Thank you to Murphy’s Law for teaching our kids about the possibilities that await them if they focus on STEM education in the future. The kids had a great time participating in this program!
