The Terp and Eagle Science Club (TESC) is a STEM tutoring program for local elementary school students. Carole Highlands Elementary School (Eagles) is a nearby Title I school where most of the parents have not attended even high school and 99% of the students receive free lunch and breakfast.
TESC aims to promote an interest in the sciences and engage students in both core and abstract learning inside and outside the classroom. With leadership from Dr. Marcia Shofner, our BSCI students began a tutoring program for 4th, 5th and 6th grade students in STEM homework three times a week last spring to help motivate these kids to come to college. This fall, the attendance doubled!
In order to continue, our BSCI tutors need your support for transportation and background checks, school supplies, snacks and STEM enrichment material for the 58 kids who regularly attend.
