Sow STEM


Sow STEM is a program which will build a network of parent groups in northeast Ohio to create a shared capability of extracurricular STEM programs. Currently these STEM opportunities are only available when parent groups create and manage them. This is a heavy burden for small parent groups. The Sow STEM program will bring together parent groups across school districts to collaborate and create program materials that can be shared and hopefully rebuild the extracurricular STEM opportunities that interest students in STEM careers.

NEOHSTEM Alliance in partnership with ACESS-ible, an affiliate of Akron Council of Engineering and Science Societies, will bring parent groups interested in providing their children and school with STEM opportunities together with the STEM professionals, mentors, and graduate students. These two groups will support the Sow STEM network and build the extracurricular capibility of the northeast Ohio region.

Phase one will be to create a library of STEM programs from current parent groups and STEM educators. This includes program materials and startup guidance and support. If necessary, program content can be augmented, updated, and documented to be in a shareable form. Phase two will be for the interested parent groups to collaborate with local resources to create new STEM competitions. The partnership will kickoff in January with a video competition. Students will create a 3-5The partnership will kickoff in January 2020 with a video competition. Students can create a 3-5 minute video of a particular STEM project or topic, a discussion status of current or future science or STEM, or a public serivce video on any science or environmental related topic. The rules will be published in January at the kickoff. See Sow STEM information.
