Learning Undefeated, AstraZeneca and The WRK Group Launch Multi-Year STEM Education Partnership to Benefit Wilmington Students
“Groundbreaking science is created in Delaware, making it a hot spot for STEM jobs. We want to energize students and get them excited about all of the STEM career opportunities that are right here in their local community,” said Brian Gaines, CEO of Learning Undefeated. “Through this collaboration between AstraZeneca and the WRK Group, we will benefit thousands of students across the region by building their confidence in STEM subjects and empowering them to know that STEM careers are out there for them.”
Inside this mobile lab, kids were given the chance to build robots, build little houses as part of a souped-up Three Little Pigs story and even building space capsules. Askelson said activities like these can be beneficial for students of all ages.“We want them to know that anyone can be an engineer, and if they want to be an engineer, they can do it — really, they can be anything they want in life; they just have to work really hard at it,” Askelson said.
Nonprofit Brings Free STEM Education to Over One Million K-12 Students through Mobile Labs, Interactive Distanced STEM Activities
“In a year when students needed interactive learning experiences more than ever, Learning Undefeated has reached the incredible milestone of inspiring more than one million students through hands-on STEM education,” said Brian Gaines, Learning Undefeated CEO. “When schools were closed due to COVID-19, our culture of innovation led us to develop hybrid learning resources that kept students connected to STEM subjects, even without access to the specialized tools they might normally have in the classroom. Our new digital learning program has amplified Learning Undefeated’s impact in ways we couldn’t have imagined, and the demand just continues to grow.”
We also know that students from low-income households begin their education at a disadvantage and are more likely to struggle with engagement, so while schools and teachers are working really hard to meet those most vulnerable learners where they’re at and their needs, we’re dedicated to helping them with that by bringing these really cool resources and experiences to their schools as well,” says Jennifer Colvin, vice president of education for Learning Undefeated, a nonprofit bringing STEM to students through mobile labs, among other means.
