Dear Parents & Stakeholders,
You are here because you feel a stake in future of our youth. Congratulations for reaching out to explore the possibilities with STEM for young minds!
Today’s jobs require a quality education, including strong science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curricula. A robust STEM education creates critical thinkers, problem solvers, and produces the next generation of innovators. STEM jobs are growing at a fast pace and currently outpacing STEM graduates. Can we do something to spark an interest?
Research shows that children develop interest in STEM fields at an average age of 8.
What if we focused our energies in exposing children to the wonders of STEM early on … in elementary and middle schools? What if, this early engagement with STEM was fun and connected with the real world of engineering and business?
A few years ago I transitioned out of corporations to focus on education in search of these answers. Finding solutions and clearing the way to bring STEM to young children has been my most purposeful and cherished journey. The experience and satisfaction surpassed even my most successful feats during my corporate career … working on cutting edge technical innovations as an engineer, winning a coveted customer account as a general manager or finding and deploying the most cost-effective source for mass production as a supply chain leader.
Since founding STEM For Kids in 2011, we have touched thousands of children in and outside of schools. We take pride in our engineering and computer sciences curricula that we have specifically designed with industry and academia to energize and excite young minds.
We are discovering that we can create sparks in young minds. Story of Essence is an example. Essence participated in a STEM For Kids’ afterschool technology program and saw an improvement in her interest level in science. She said “I was not interested in science but now I am interested and my grade in science is improving”.
We are mission bound to make STEM fun and real. Tell us how we can support your STEM goals.
We look forward to serving youth in your community.
