Science and Technology Group, Inc.

 

Mission Statement

 

The Science and Technology Group (STG) is a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation founded in November of 2001 to promote technology education for K-12 youth through experiential learning and partnerships with workplace technical professionals, primarily scientist and engineers. STG is principally a catalyst organization that provides infrastructure, training, and other support to facilitate technical professional volunteers in their interaction with students in a defined area of service.

 

Goals

 

The current objective of this organization is simple: get students excited about science, math and technology. We will accomplish this via the competitive programs offered by FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) program. In the future, the Science and Technology Group may be adding other programs in addition to FIRST.

 

 

Strategic Objectives

 

-Create and foster excitement for science and technology in K-12 youth through competitive science activities modeled after athletic competitions.

-Use science competitions as a vehicle to involve technical professional volunteers in the education process

-Develop inquiry-based curriculum based on the concepts used in the competitions, in order to reach all students and enable systemic change in science and technology education

-Reach out to all segments of the student population who are underrepresented in science and technology

 

People
