Allen STEAM Ambassadors Tutoring Program for 5th & 6th Graders

Allen STEAM Ambassadors (a student leadership program with a STEM/STEAM focus), provides a virtual tutoring service that was developed by the students in the program. The STEAM Ambassadors are top high school students that excel in science and math. The program was piloted a few weeks ago with 7th and 8th graders, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.


Starting tomorrow it will be open to students grades 5th -9th grades needing support in math and science. While it is not a replacement for tutoring with their teacher, some virtual students could benefit from this type of one-on-one virtual support.


Details on the program as well as the required forms/materials are included on the attached flyer.
