S2S is providing four innovative programs for improving student affinity and aptitude for Careers in STEM.
1 - The ISAAC Program, conducted at The S2S Technology Center in East Hanover New Jersey
3 - The Community College Licensing Program (CCLP) – expansion of the laboratory model through our partners
4 - Enrichment Programs – enhancements to the on-site program for both teachers and students
Our programs focus on changing the students’ attitude toward pursuing a career in a STEM related field, as well as improving student aptitude with STEM subject matter. S2S has identified and targeted three factors critical to creating this attitudinal change.
The V-Lab Program
S2S in partnership with Connectivity, Inc. has developed a fully interactive web-based, multi-lingual; hybrid distance based learning (HDBL) program supporting K-12 students and teachers. S2S provides a supplementary education experience to support teachers in the classroom by way of its V-Lab Program. The V-Lab Program consists of a series of supplemental age appropriate, “hands-on” science experiments to be performed by the students in their local classroom and simultaneously at the S2S Technology Center by use of high speed video teleconferencing. S2S scientists demonstrate how to conduct each experiment, and describes how the scientific techniques and learning principles are used in real world business applications. S2S sends the kits, trains the teachers, and conducts a joint session by use of video conferencing. Each kit contains enough materials for the teacher to run the experiments again on their own 3-4 more times.
