After-School Science & STEM Programs 

ELEMENTARY & MIDDLE SCHOOL

Our after-school activities started in January 2016, through a partnership with Miami-Dade public schools and community centers. Our program is unique in that it is framed by behavioral economics’ behavior change theory that calls for incentivizing full participation to attain maximum benefits.  Incentivizing behavior change is an effective means for achieving expected changes when individuals are less likely to be intrinsically motivated. Also important is to have role models for what that behavior change represents. 

In the Fall of 2018, we incorporated our first female-centric program into Francis S. Tucker to mirror our male-centric program that currently existed. 

January 2019 we incorporated Science and STEM programs to the Coconut Grove, South Miami and Coral Gables communities in partnership with Miami-Dade Public Schools and community centers.
