This program encourages youth to learn through physical play, turn their ideas into inventions, and solve problems they care about. Snap The Gap™ is a grant-funded initiative that uses three proven components to impact the STEM opportunity gap: experiential learning with STEM inventor kits, mentorship, and expanded learning opportunities.
Students who have had mentors are 2.5 times more likely to be confident in their ability to succeed in school and careers. Snap the Gap is open to students who are committed to positively impacting the preparation gap in STEM fields.
Materials: paper, scissors, tape, and drawing utensils (pen/pencil, markers/crayons).
Optional materials: recyclable/reusable materials (cardboard, plastic food packaging, newspaper/magazines, etc.)
