Can I request the van?
At this point in time, no. Once
the STEM Van is fully operational, we have several communities we need
to serve first in order to fulfill specific funding requirements.
When will it come to my area?
By Spring 2023, we will
have a better idea of when and where the STEM Van will be traveling.
Please check back here for updates.
What technology is available?
Currently, we have one
large 3D printer, many 3D pens, a life-sized anatomy figure (Ana Tomy)
with removable parts, drones, virtual reality headsets, laptops,
tablets, electronic telescopes, and our mobile StarLab Planetarium. As
funding becomes available, we’ll purchase additional items.
It sounds like you have a lot of technology. How will the other
letters of “STEM” be fulfilled?
Our Program Manager has
developed a wide range of STEM activities that will fulfill all parts
of STEM: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Girl
Scouts also has over 35 STEM and financial literacy badges available,
which will provide additional programming.
Have you met your fundraising goal?
We have raised over
$185,000 for this project, but ongoing funds are always needed.
Technology will need to be replaced and vehicle maintenance and fuel
costs will be ongoing. You can donate to the Mobile STEM Learning
Center project here. Want to purchase items from our Amazon Wish
