Future Einsteins is an inter-district science enrichment program designed to utilize upper level high school students to introduce and energize elementary students.
Lessons stimulate thought in both physical and life sciences while improving science lab skills using systems, models and patterns. The program improves understanding of the scientific method, reasoning and analysis to promote success in future courses as well as future careers in all STEMM fields. Competencies describe the relationships of concepts to real life. The overall goal is to encourage students to think outside the box in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine. Every lesson is driven by at least one realm of Science, but usually there is an overlap. Science concepts are presented, than technology and engineering are implemented by the students as they design, create and test their product. Mathematics is used as the fact behind the science as students measure their results, calculate differences and infer the results and conclusions. All of which are skills that are required in the biology and medicine field.
