Dumfries Boys & Girls Club members are keeping their hands busy.
The club is offering Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs to middle school students.
The Junior Achieving Career and College Excellence (A.C.E.) program is one of them, according to Regi Ratliff, program director of the Dumfries Boys & Girls Club.
A.C.E. is held every Monday.
“We focus on LEGO robotics, we focus on waterbotics, we also do experiments …. Every week there’s some type of fun activity,” Ratliff said.
Students are also learning how to build bridges with popsicle sticks.
Activities, Ratliff said, are offered in the Boys & Girls Club computer labs, as well.
Participants who finish the program will receive a certificate.
“At the end of the program, each member receives a certificate of completion that acknowledges their diligence in going through the program and successfully completing all of the exercises and projects through our STEM and STEM-related programs,” Ratliff said.
