Oroville, Calif. -- A group of Butte County high school students is working to inspire elementary school kids by teaching fun science experiments.

Elementary students at Wyandotte Academy meet twice a week to design and build a project that combines science, technology, engineering and math.


The Stem Ninjas is a group of high school students in a program from the Boys and Girls Club of the North Valley and Butte County Office of Education.

The Stem Ninjas program provides job training experience for teens and STEMS knowledge to elementary students in Oroville.

The Stem Ninjas guide the students on technique and critical thinking skills and after a 30-minute build time, the groups debrief together and then go on to build different projects.

In a few weeks, the Stem Ninjas will be teaching the kids how to build robots.
