What is a STEM Box?
Less than half of youth who’ve experienced foster care graduate from high school. Only 3% of people who have been in foster care will graduate from high school. These shocking statistics inspired the Together We Rise STEM Box. A STEM Box is an interactive kit that allows children in foster care to experience projects centered around science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
