In an effort to increase academic achievement in children and youth, the Jacobs Family Foundation is partnering with the Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club of Wellington and awarding a $25,000 grant to support STEM Programming over the 12 months. These programs emphasize basic academics on a technology platform using a series of (45 min – 1.5 hour) project-based lessons. The STEM educational programs include various modules and initiatives that focus on science, technology, engineering and math and are divided according to age group and skill level, affording each participating child opportunities to learn and excel at their own pace and level without the fear of failure.
