Real Talk: Why did we create Elementary STEM Club?

This is going to be an unprecedented year. Back to school has never looked this way, and it's going to require extraordinary flexibility and ingenuity. There's no reason to walk this road alone!

We may not have all the answers now... but together, we will figure them out!
