STEM & Leaf Corps

The STEM & Leaf Corps is a education-based outreach initiative with two main goals.

First, they aim to maximize the potential of each and every student they work with at the primary and secondary education levels. To meet the demand of our students, they offer high-level educational outreach in the form of Project-Based Learning, AP/IB Review Sessions, National Science Bowl Lectures, STAAR specific small-group sessions, and concept-driven tutoring at all levels free-of-charge.

Second, they aim to give their high achieving undergraduate students from various disciplines the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in instruction, leadership, and communication while stimulating an interest in the incorporation of teaching into their future careers.
