What is the STEM Initiative?

Olive Children has established a robust, sustainable STEM-based summer program that specifically serves the academic and extracurricular needs of socioeconomically disadvantaged families in the East Bay area communities. This would be accomplished through a 6-week summertime program built around hands-on & project-based learning, whereby scientific exploration and innovation is harnessed as a platform for building technological literacy, academic confidence, and leadership, advocacy, and character traits. Our mission is to help middle school students transition from 8th grade to 9th grade academically, socially, and emotionally prepared to manage their high school classes.

How much does it cost?

Nothing, except your commitment & enthusiasm! That’s right - there is no cost associated with enrolling in Olive’s STEM Initiative summer program.

Am I eligible?

Engineering Everywhere

Empower youth to become more effective problem solvers. Working through challenges students follow an age-appropriate 8-step engineering design process that gets them thinking like engineers. Engineering Everywhere builds 21st century skills as students learn to collaborate, communicate, think critically and present their findings in an Engineering Showcase.

Engineering Timers

In this unit, students will use their mechanical engineering skills to design their own timekeeping technology that measures time.



Engineering a Water Reuse Process

Youth participating in this unit become water resource engineers as they use the steps of the Engineering Design Process to design creative ways to reuse water.



Engineering Ice Cream

In this unit, students will learn how ice cream gets to be so creamy and delicious, as they engineer a process for making ice cream.
