The Jaffa Institute launched the Science Mobile Program in 2018 to provide disadvantaged children from diverse backgrounds throughout Israel with engaging STEM education. Through this innovative program, RV trailers outfitted with cutting-edge technologies travel to the Jaffa Institute’s After-School Educational Enrichment Centers for at-risk youth, as well as to underserved public schools.
Each “STEM Mobile” vehicle accommodates 10 students, allowing the instructor to provide the small group of children with individualized feedback and support.
Participants are able to successfully complete increasingly complex projects despite their vast educational gaps, thereby building the children’s confidence in their ability to pursue a career in a STEM field. In addition to developing the children’s scientific skills, these lessons build their creativity, self-esteem, and motivation.
