This is a guest post to let you know all about the EPIC Challenge from St. Jude. We are so happy to share about their free STEM curriculum! For more details, please visit the St. Jude Epic Challenge.
Science, technology, engineering and mathematics—they’re all used every day at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. From careful measurements for patients’ medicine to the complex mathematics needed in their state-of-the-art research facilities, STEM plays an important role in helping St. Jude continue to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago and now children can sharpen the same important skills used by St. Jude doctors and scientists every day.
Download the St. Jude EPIC Challenge (Experimenting, Prototyping, Inventing and Creating) and use five flexible STEM-focused lessons to guide your little learner as they research, design, create, test and present an invention or idea that they think could help improve everyday life for kids like those at St. Jude. The best part? The curriculum is free, designed to meet Next Generation Science Standards AND had a real world impact. Thanks programs like the EPIC Challenge, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
The EPIC Challenge can be used in the classroom or at home, so if you are homeschooling or want to provide enrichment for your STEM-minded child, this is the perfect way to start!
The child you introduce to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital today could be the doctor who finds cures tomorrow. To learn more and sign up for St. Jude EPIC Challenge, please visit www.stjude.org/epic.
