STEM Toy Drive 2012


For the last 4 years SHPE-NYC has hosted a toy drive, in conjunction with our holiday dinner, to raise gifts for needy children in the community. Last year SHPE-NYC launched a new initiative, our STEM Toy drive, where we donated over 100 STEM toys to elementary school children in New York City.

The goal of the STEM Toy Drive is to focus our efforts on toys that will help to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education among the youth within our Hispanic community. We hope these STEM toys will help to spark interest in the next generation of Engineers and Technologists!

Curious for examples of STEM Toys? SHPE-NYC has developed one of the first STEM Toys lists on Amazon and various other site. Follow the links for more details:

We want to show kids that STEM can be fun! Do you have a suggestion for toys that should be added to our list? Leave us a comment or send us an email at: info@shpe-nyc.org
