WCFM Launches Online Resource for Educational STEM learning
Our interest is to promote synergy between Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Art, and Health Educators who are best positioned to inspire children to achieve a healthy education while placing them on a more productive path to become scientists, technologist, engineers, mathematicians, and artists. We believe that health and education outcomes are inter-dependent and that students are best served by community champions who step-up to the challenge to help us overcome persistent poverty and childhood obesity.
