STEAM Programs

In our STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) Power Room, we encourage our members to explore their ideas and imaginations.

We are looking for creative, inquisitive individuals to come to STEAM and explore the worlds of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. Our goal is to provide a welcoming environment for kids to get involved in hands-on, experienced based learning and fun.  It’s a place where ideas can be conjured up and put into action.  Ingenuity and activity are highly encouraged.

Come Explore with Us!

We’re full STEAM ahead at the BGCSV.

WHAT WE DO IN THE STEAM ROOM

Design and Engineering

Get involved with the design and building of towers, bridges and a variety of contraptions.  Work individually or with a friend to create the tallest, longest and strongest structures possible.

Experimentation and Demonstration

Take part in the experiments or demonstrations that deal with a wide variety of STEAM related topics.  We have built electromagnets, created lava lamps, explored the density of different liquids, constructed bottle rockets and just experimented with what happens when you mix this with that.  We have much more to explore.

Theater Stagecraft

Help design, engineer and construct theatrical sets for our BGCSV Riverbend Theater Company.  Learn what it takes to plan and build a set for a theatrical production. You will measure, cut, lift, screw together, tape, paint, trim and a wide array of other skills you never expected to do.  In the end, you get to say with pride, “I helped build that!”

Stop Motion Animation

Use your creativity to develop an idea, create a storyboard, and then using claymation techniques, LEGO people and blocks, or some method of your own imagination to film a stop motion video. It will take time and lots of patience, but be well worth the effort when your vision hits the screen.

Other Stuff

We build with K’nex. We race Hot Wheels. We troubleshoot mechanical computers. We take stuff apart.  We code and play with robots. We build with Snap Circuits. We do lots of stuff, and we have fun.

DAILY PROGRAMS

LEGO Corner

A daily option for those who feel like it’s a LEGO building day. Come and just build to your hearts content or take part in many of the monthly design and construction competitions. It’s all about connecting the blocks, and we have plenty!

Creation Station

It’s a maker space for kids. We got junk and you can use it as you choose. From the creation of robots to simple machines and catapults to works of art, we have made it here.

Chromebooks and Tablets

Take advantage of using our technology for homework completion, learning code and interacting with STEAM related games and activities

Along with the rest of the world, we’ve been closely monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19. It has brought uncertainty and disruption to the communities we serve, but Boys & Girls Clubs of Souhegan Valley’s top priority has not changed: the health and safety of the children we serve.

I wanted to take a moment to keep you informed on how we are doing everything we can to ensure the well-being of our Club members, as well as the staff and volunteers who work at/with the Club.

We remain in close and regular contact with local, regional and state health officials and are monitoring the regular updates from the Federal government, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as the World Health Organization (WHO). Though the situation around the virus remains fluid, our goal is to continue our mission – to serve those kids who need us the most – both during and after the crisis affecting all of us now.

Here are some of the proactive steps we’ve quickly taken to continue to protect the well-being of our members, as well as to continue the important work of the Club:

  1. Established a weekly meeting schedule, made up of Club leadership and Board members, to monitor the situation, stay in close contact with local, regional and national officials and share insights to Club staff, parents and greater Milford community.
  2. Reinforced our Safety Standards with additional emphasis on virus prevention protocols across the organization and to our Club members’ families.
  3. Expanded opportunities for Club staff members to reduce their risk of contracting and spreading infections, and ensure they have the necessary support during these uncertain times.
  4. Defined what resources we can provide to our kids and families, whether the Club itself is open or closed.
  5. Utilized virtual resources developed by our staff to continue connection and engagement with Club members and their families remotely.
  6. Taken extra steps to ensure our Clubhouses are clean, sanitized and that those who enter are symptom-free.

The safety and well-being of our Club members remains our foremost priority, and we will continue to share updates with you as quickly and transparently as possible.
