Joint Base Andrews Child and Youth Programs Launches STEM Center of Innovation
The Youth Center at Joint Base Andrews (JBA) opened a new Center of Innovation, dedicated to sparking children's interest in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). The JBA STEM Center of Innovation, funded by a grant from the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, will be used to inspire children with an interest in STEM subjects and provide youth access to advanced technologies that could encourage them to pursue further education in science fields. The lab includes a 3-D printer, high-definition drop screens, HD multimedia interface projectors, rocket and solar-panel kits, microscopes, a flight simulator and more. The Center of Innovation allows students the opportunity to create and experiment in a safe and supervised environment while they explore a variety of STEM programs. The STEM Center of Innovation was made possible thanks to the partnership between the Air Force and Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
