NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Area elementary students explored fire trucks and ambulances, interacted with snakes and tarantulas, and built gliders out of straws and notecards during Stephen F. Austin State University’s Little STEM Jacks.
Hosted by the STEM Research and Learning Center, the program provided an immersive learning experience for students entering kindergarten through fifth grade. Students rotated between classrooms, learning physics, biology and nursing concepts.
“With its hands-on learning approach, each student who attends Little STEM Jacks is able to interact with STEM professionals to learn more about different disciplines within STEM and potential career options,” said Adrienne Aul, STEM Research and Learning Center programs coordinator.
Suddenlink by Altice is the official partner of Little STEM Jacks.
“I am so thankful Suddenlink was able to play a small role in helping students experience the incredible STEM opportunities at SFA,” said Curt Allison, community specialist with Suddenlink. “It was really exciting to see the young students excited about STEM.”
