Design Squad Global Club @ OLOL STEM

In Design Squad Global (DSG) clubs, kids explore engineering through fun-packed, high energy, hands-on activities, such as designing and building an emergency shelter or a structure that can withstand an earthquake. Through DSG, kids also get a special opportunity: the chance to work alongside a partner club from another country. Partner clubs share their experiences by exchanging design ideas, photos, and videos. Along the way, they develop their global competency by learning more about each other's cultures, communities, and lives.

Our Lady of Lourdes STEM team is committed to provide equity and access to STEM opportunities to the students we serve.  The STEM team includes 3 University of Notre Dame STEM Teaching Fellows.  

We are fortunate to work with the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit and the 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant program to offer rich STEAM curricula in our after school program.
