STEM 4 Kids (S4K) is an inclusive after school program designed to help young girls build confidence in the world of STEM! Our hope is to help propel these young girls into STEM by introducing them to creative problem solving through fun projects in an inclusive and safe environment. We want to show more young students that they are accepted and welcome around science, engineering, and technology.

This semester, our events will be held in the Scott Bioengineering Building, Room 229. Our designated drop off location will be the Green Hall loop on the west side of the  building. From Meridian Avenue, enter the Green Hall loop. Our volunteers will meet you and check your student in. If you wish to park to drop off your student, you can do so in Lot 150 or Lot 310.

Lot 150 is to the west of Scott Bioengineering, off Meridian Avenue, in front of Green Hall. It is a pay to park lot, however, it is not enforced after 4pm so you will not have to pay. 

Lot 310 is the main Lory Student Center lot. To enter from Laurel, turn right on Meldrum if heading eastbound, turn left on Meldrum if heading westbound. Turn right after the stop sign and park. It is a pay to park lot, however, it is not enforced after 4pm so you will not have to pay. Once you have parked, cross the street so you are in front of the College of Business. Follow the sidewalk west to the Scott Bioengineering Building.
