Abbott employees featured in iBIO STEM Kits as STEM Heros helped distribute the next round of monthly STEM Kits to studnets at Chippewa Middle School.

The iBIO STEM Kits is a new program designed to fill an important educational gap created by distance learning in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a leader in after-school and summer camps reaching more than four thousand students, iBIO built on the research-based curricular assets to create fun, safe and age-appropriate activities for at home STEM exploration.

Abbott partnered with iBIO to provide more than 2,000 of iBIO’s STEM kits to high-need, low-income students grades 3-8 in Des Plaines School District 62. The monthly kits provide everything needed for each learning activity, as well as information about real-world applications and spotlights on local STEM heroes highlighting women and people of color.
