Volunteers for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics; Who are We?
In 2008, the Knoxville Chamber, Tennessee Society of Professional Engineers, Knox County Schools and the Great Schools Partnership launched an internet-based clearinghouse called Vols4STEM to connect educators with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professionals and share expertise with students on K-12 STEM programs, competitions and projects relating to their field. These include programs like Future Cities, MathCounts, Lego League, FIRST, Bridge-building, Engineer’s Week, Science Fairs, JETS and Science Bowl.
This website allows prospective volunteers to sign up and offer their help, provides information about ongoing and proposed STEM outreach activities, helps locate other professionals interested in participating in STEM programs, and provides contact information for area schools, clubs, churches, neighborhoods or other settings interested in hosting such activities.
