Project SYNCERE will take its playful engineering-based learning (PEBL) activities on the road to 60 Chicago neighborhoods this summer. The goal is to engage K-8 students from traditionally underrepresented communities with STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) by making learning fun.

Thanks to its collaboration with Tufts University Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO) and a grant from the LEGO Foundation, Project SYNCERE has purchased two vans, called STEM-in-Motion Mobile Tinker Labs, and equipped them with high-tech and low-tech engineering resources and tools.

At each neighborhood library the labs visit, children will participate in play-based challenges around the theme of “City of Stories. Using life-sized tinker sets, LEGO kits, robotics, electronics, and ramps, participants can design, build, and create structures, vehicles, robots, and more using their own neighborhoods as inspiration.

What story can you tinker?
