NIHF-STEM Exploring Club Engages Learners

Goodyear Auto Tech Session Featured at NIHF-STEM
Posted on 02/03/2022

The program is called the Exploring Club and it is part of the middle school transformation funded by CCAA-(College and Career Academies of Akron).  Based on a survey given to our 6th - 8th graders we were matched with 3 career areas:  skilled trades, healthcare, and the performing arts.  The twelve-week program is divided into 3 modules that are four weeks each.  The first three meetings of each module are spent learning about the career and doing hands-on related activities and the fourth meeting is a field trip to the company/organization.  Our program includes Goodyear Autotech, Rubber City Theatre, and Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital.  


So far we have had 2 meetings with Goodyear in which the learners interacted with a Tesla Model S and learned about electric cars and a Camaro racing car.  They learned how to check air pressure, tire tread depth, and how to check oil. Stay tuned for more special features as this program continues!
