“Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area.
As the adage goes, “You can’t be what you can’t see.”
That’s why STEMcityPHL brings STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) professionals into elementary schools to engage in “high-impact mentoring,” as explained by Program Manager Phil Brooks. That may involve, say, video game designs working with students to design a game, or building garden beds on school grounds.
The program is tied to US2020, a national STEM mentorship initiative. Learn more in Brooks’ “Around the Corner” interview below.
PhillyCAM is Comcast channel 66/966 HD/967 and Verizon FIOS channel 29/30 in Philadelphia.-30-
