    Who We Are: A school-based service learning project established in 2014 and funded by the Joe W. and Dorothy Dorsett Brown Foundation.  We operate as a 501(c)3 non-profit program.

    What We Do: Teach beginner and intermediate robotics & engineering concepts to elementary school students across Louisiana and Mississippi.  Students are engaged in lessons in basic electricity & electronics, Vex robotics, Lego Mindstorms, 'Lil Bits, arduino, 3-D modeling & printing, animatronics, programming & coding, and robot design & build siumulations. We actively share the mission of FIRST, and inspire other schools to form teams.

    Community Impact:  STEM-lementary has interacted with hundreds of thousands of school-age children, all in efforts to change the cultural perceptions of pursuing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
