Science on the Move

Science on the Move is a mobile program provides education resources designed to increase students’ exposure and interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Through the use of two mobile trailers filled with cutting-edge equipment and lessons, this program has the ability to reach under served youth in rural areas across the state.

Science on the Move follows students ages 5-19, giving them the skills to further their training after graduation and prepare them for careers in the sciences. This program intends to help coach students to become the prepared workforce that South Carolina needs to interest new businesses and encourage economic growth.
