Outreach: STOMP from Tufts University

Students Work Together in STOMPThe Student Teacher Outreach Mentorship Program (STOMP) at Tufts University is designed to partner pairs of fellows (Tufts University students) with K-12 teachers in the greater Boston, Mass. area to create an engineering curriculum that reaches across all disciplines, peaks the students’ interests in engineering, and improves the students’ problem-solving skills. The engineering curriculum also meets standards required by the Science, Technology, and Engineering component of the Massachusetts Frameworks.

The Tufts’ STOMP website has a teacher resource page that provides an activity database, which is a collection of STEM activities developed by Tufts STOMP fellows; a list of all pertinent documents needed to get involved in STOMP; class units, which is a full semester collection of activities developed at the Tufts Center for Engineering, Education, and Outreach; useful links to other websites that may provide general information on other STEM outreach programs, developing activities on STEM subject areas, and using LEGO and other tools for teaching; and a list of grants that teachers or schools can apply for funding for materials and support.

The program at Tufts is a paid $10/hr job for both undergraduate and graduate for up to 8-10 hours/week. Each semester the program averages about 35 fellows from a variety of academic disciplines ranging from engineering to child development.
