Kids Ahead For Grown-Ups
Welcome to Kids Ahead! Our program is an initiative to increase the number of kids with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) competencies and interests. This website is designed to inspire young people to learn about STEM through innovative interactions in the physical and virtual worlds.
The Kids Ahead program is part of a larger national initiative being led by Southern Methodist University to improve STEM skills in young people. By providing middle school children access to quality content, activities, projects, events and information, Kids Ahead will spark their interest and passion. Kids Ahead also seeks to provide parents, teachers, club leaders and STEM volunteers the resources they need to make STEM activities a central part of young people's lives.
