STEM Programs for Chicago Public Schools are dedicated to enriching, exposing, educating, and engaging students to the world of STEM. In order to promote early STEM education, they offer a wide range of programs, such as their career and technical programs, CS4All, and STEM programs that involve five of their Early College STEM Schools.
James Richmond, Project Manager for STEM Programs at Chicago Public Schools, works primarily on the Out of School Time Enrichment programs, which take place after school, on weekends, and during vacations. These programs allow students to apply the knowledge they learn in school through hands-on projects such as robot building, web coding, and app development. Students are also encouraged to peak their interest in all areas of STEM by participating in programs, such as the Summer STEM Launch Camps.
