STEM to Stern is taking off!

Green Lake Crew is piloting a new program for middle school students in partnership with STEM to Stern and Bitter Lake Community Center. We have successfully run multiple summer sessions, introducing the campers to rowing, water safety, STEM activities and fun, and have moved into planning a year long team training atmosphere.  We have concluded our Fall session where the participants were able to get on the water twice a week with their coach, Helen Theime, and work on a fun STEM activity once a week with our STEM coordinator, Jen Breedlove. 

Moving into Winter, we are planning to extend our STEM activity to span the whole season and teach the STS team what winter training is all about! We are also hopeful we will be able to create field trip opportunities to the UW boathouse and campus. 

Green Lake Crew is housed at the Green Lake Small Craft Center, a Seattle Parks and Recreation facility. This program is supported by SPR and the Associated Recreation Council. Funding has been granted by the George Pocock Rowing Foundation for this and ongoing programming. We are deeply grateful for our partners’ support.
