What is STEM / STEAM? How is ForCarol Getting Involved?


Thanks to Michelle Cho our 2017 Carol Phan Scholarship recipient for suggesting the addition of Art to make STEM –> STEAM. 🙂

As a non-profit dedicated to helping local teachers and students with classroom supplies and college scholarships, ForCarol.com is re-starting our STEM / STEAM enrichment program to help local teachers bring science, technology, engineering, art, and math awareness into the classroom.

Given proper funding, ForCarol.com will will purchase STEM / STEAM materials that can be donated to local teachers for use in their classrooms.

In Jan 2020, ForCarol.com in collaboration with TateandCole.org delivered 2 Wireless weather stations, and 2 weather books to two Tracy, CA teachers.

Go here to to see the latest STEM / STEAM donations we have made to local teachers, and to sign up for a chance to get these donations (Tracy, CA teachers only) Hint: You gotta be quick with email. 😉
