Challenge

Minority populations - particularly girls, Non-English speakers and the economically disadvantaged - are poorly represented in STEM fields. Studies show inequalities and gaps in STEM learning begin early in a child's life, making it difficult to catch up with their more advantaged peers. By introducing and reinforcing STEM concepts we can help turn this around through parent trainings, our unique RAR childrens book collection, extension activies and connections to local libraries.

Solution

RAR's mission is to engage caregivers in a routine of book sharing with their children from birth through age eight to foster healthy brain development, healthy relationships, a love of reading, and the literacy skills critical for school success.
Help us deliver literacy and family engagement programs - books and materials in STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) - to disadvantaged children at risk of academic failure in the United States.

Long-Term Impact

By supporting this project you will help to provide a solid foundation of STEM and early literacy for children across the US that will result in more Economically Disadvantaged, Girls, English Language Learners and Minority Populations represented in STEM related fields in years to come.
