In 2015, SkillsUSA launched its free member resource Jump into STEM!, a curriculum developed for high-school students to use when mentoring elementary-school students on future career-path options. Based on the huge success of the elementary-school edition, SkillsUSA has released 22 new Jump into STEM! lessons designed to provide opportunities to engage middle-school students in STEM-related activities. The curriculum now provides tools and activities for SkillsUSA members to help both elementary- and middle-school students take part in interactive career experiences.

The program, sponsored by State Farm Insurance Companies, is available at no charge through SkillsUSA’s 4,000 chapters nationwide. Any SkillsUSA chapter can use the resource, which has been provided to chapter advisors as part of their professional membership.  Click here to join as a professional member.
