Hands on Stem Club: Hands-On STEM is a 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsorship organization founded by Lynbrook students last year that aims to close the education gap in the world by spreading awareness and providing STEM education and opportunities through workshops to middle-school students from under-privileged or low-income school districts.

Those who attend our meetings will also be giving volunteer hours. Please fill out this interest form to be added to the email list. The Zoom link will be sent out later to those on the mailing list.
