Youth in STEM Initiative
Building foundational skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) will prepare youth for any future career path they choose. Fry Family Foundation is partnering with the St. John's Community Centres to engage youth in STEM learning and to help launch them on an educational and career path in those fields. Starting in the Fall of 2020, these programs have been identified to encourage a greater focus on STEM for CCA youth.
Free Tutoring from MUN Engineering Students: This pilot program is a partnership with the MUN Faculty of Engineering, and if it is successful, we plan to make this an ongoing initiative for the benefit of CCA students. Laughter Afolabi, Nicholas Hale, Camden Mercer & Nibras Birama have been working with the St. John’s Community Centres during Fall 2020.
Free attendance at the Environmental Education Centre Program: Students in grades 5-8 will be immersed in environmental education during this 2 day/1 night program. All costs will be covered for any CCA youth that attend the program with their school classmates. Read more about this program here.
Free attendance at NLESD Mini-enrichment Camps: The NL English School District (NLESD) offers 2-day camps for students in grades 7-9 at MUN, Marine Institute and College of the North Atlantic. Tuition costs will be paid for any CCA youth who attend this program through their school. Read more about this program here.
Free attendance at MedQuest and Explore Engineering Camps: Winners of the FFF CCA Junior Scholarships in grades 10-11 will have the opportunity to explore careers in STEM and have their programming fees paid to attend either MUN MedQuest or Explore Engineering Camps.
