Encouraging Diversity in STEM


Raleigh NC, 07/23/15 – Torchea, a 6th grader aspires to be an entrepreneur, “I want to open my own store”, she says. Her teacher said “[she] will make a positive difference in the world if she's given an opportunity.”This summer, Torchea got the opportunity to learn how to create websites and made a website for her future store.

Angela said about her daughter, “She has told me since third grade that she wanted to be a scientist and has not changed her mind yet … As a parent it hurts to tell your child no because you simply cannot afford it [science and engineering camp]. “ This summer Angela got the opportunity to say “Yes” to her daughter as she enrolled her in a STEM For Kids robotics camp.

STEM For Kids Gives Back Lopez got the opportunity to attend his first ever STEM camp and to learn HTML programming.

These opportunities have been made possible by STEM For Kids Geek Scholarships.

“Giving back to our community is at the core of what we do at STEM For Kids … it is in our organizational heartbeat”, says Moni Singh, Founder and CEO who is recognized as a Triangle Business Journal’s 40 under 40 Leader and a Leader in STEM and honored by the Enterprising Women Magazine.

Over the years, many area schools and students have benefitted from STEM givebacks. GeeK Scholarships , named in honor of Singh’s parents, was awarded to students representing ethnic minority groups in need of financial assistance. Five more scholarships will be granted for summer camps in August 2015. To learn about the application process, email nctriangle@stemforkids.net.

“This year has been exciting; we directed our philanthropy towards encouraging diversity in STEM. While STEM jobs are growing at a fast pace and promise lucrative salaries, STEM workforce is not diverse”, Singh says citing her experiences as a woman in engineering and the diversity reports provided by Tech giants like Facebook and Google. Hispanics and African-Americans combined represent only 3-4% of the tech workforce while they are 30% of the US population. Women represent only 25% of the STEM jobs.

“It is a supply chain issue. We need more diverse students entering the STEM education pipeline and we need to find effective ways to retain them in the pipeline. At STEM For Kids, we are working to impact the first need.“, Singh says.

In an interview with Miriam L. Brewer at the International Franchise Association’s education and diversity group, Singh said “Changes have to take place at the grassroots level to inspire children irrespective of their ethnic backgrounds. ” [ See the full article as published in the Franchising World Magazine here]

Through initiatives like the GeeK Scholarship, Singh is making STEM more accessible for these groups. Additionally, she invites people of color to come join the STEM For Kids Franchise System. To encourage minorities to step up, be the torch bearers and role models in their communities, STEM For Kids provides incentives for ethnic minorities who join this STEM educational franchise system.

The Adventures of Captain EnergyPants


Raleigh NC, 6/22/2014 – Captain EnergyPants made an impressive debut at STEM For Kids camp last week. EnergyPants took campers on an amazing journey of discovering energy.

Adventures of Captain EnergyPants Children applied the engineering design process to design their own catapults and engaged in a friendly catapult war. Afterwards, they collaborated to design and build roller coasters to experience potential and kinetic forms of energy. It was a matter of time before the hallway was filled with coasters taking their marble passengers through topsy-turvy turns.

Captain EnergyPants had a lot more of adventure still in store. Campers delved into making work easy by creating simple machines. Soon, we had various creations demonstrating the five types of simple machines - inclined planes, wheels and axle, gears, pulleys and levers. Campers were proud of their creations - a bicycle, an elevator, a ramp, a ferris wheel and a balance.

As a worldwide search for cheaper and cleaner energy continues, campers explored renewable energy sources and raced cars using wind energy.

What was the best part of the camp? Campers were undecided and the votes evenly split among the various energetic activities.

There are two remaining opportunities to participate in this camp in Raleigh this summer - Week of July 14th and the week of August 11. Interested parents can register online at www.stemforkids.net/registration.html.

Keeping NC ahead in STEM


Raleigh, NC, 1/9/2013 – STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) is an economic imperative for the US. Our state of North Carolina recently showed a silver lining in the STEM rhetoric.

On the surface STEM picture looks grim for the US - domestically we are not producing enough STEM graduates to fill the STEM jobs in US. The latest international assessment of students put US behind several nations in math and science. The good news is that North Carolina performed better than other US states in Math. Our government, academia and local businesses are playing a significant role in furthering STEM: from basic research and education in our universities to innovations through various businesses and organizations.


One organization, STEM For Kids based in Raleigh, is uniquely focusing at the grassroots level – making STEM fun and real for elementary age kids.


“While such programs provide an important bridge in reinforcing and stretching children’s overall learning our schools play the most critical role in our children’s education. That’s why, for each child who registers for our camps, we give back to their schools / PTAs. Last quarter, 13 local schools benefitted from this initiative”, says Mrs. Singh.


STEM For Kids also offers in-school workshops / field-trips and after-school programs. “Our focus now is on making these innovative programs accessible to children so more and more can explore the fun and hands-on side of science and math.”


Schools and parents interested in these programs can visit www.stemforkids.net or email at fun@stemforkids.net; Organizations interested in supporting increased program accessibility can email at donate@stemforkids.net.

WRAL Reports on STEM For Kids


Raleigh, NC, 11/11/2012 – The STEM For Kids story presented by WRAL’s Sarah Hall:

“There were their endless questions and interest about how things worked - from why do rainbows form to how do planes fly. And there was a newspaper article in the Wall Street Journal about college students dropping their science majors because the classes were just too hard.


Singh figured that if young kids, who were curious about the world, had a chance to learn about science early on, it might not seem so daunting once they are in college. "There's a lot we can do to inspire children when they are really young," she said, calling them "fertile seeds."


STEM for Kids focuses on elementary school kids. The programs are fun and educational.”

Elementary (K-5) children are having fun with STEM


Raleigh, NC, 02/09/2012 – Children are having a blast of fun with STEM For Kids’ Engineering programs for K-5 children. “I love it, it’s awesome, it’s cool …”, said Matthew a 2nd grader. “This is the best camp in the world, thank you for making it”, said Kendall, a 3rd grader.

Third camp

This week, “Fun with STEM”, an hour long program at the North Regional Library was greeted with some highly energetic remarks from the children: “We are ready Engineer STEM” and “STEM is fun”.


Last week, children got a full load of M&M during STEM For Kids’ Mechanical Engineering Camp. So, what is M&M? Motion and Machines!!! Together with Engineer STEM, children ventured into the land of mechanics. They experienced the epic battle between adventurous motion and halting friction. They got cozy with inertia, explored the potential of energy and created many fun gizmos and gadgets. Best of all, they took all their projects home for extended fun.


Previously during a Civil Engineering camp, children had a lot of fun in their awesome journey of close encounters with the “all fall down” gravity, thrilling balancing acts, bridging designs and the quest to make the tallest skyscraper! During the week-long camp, there were remarkable balancing acts anywhere from finger to nose to tongues and astute budgeting as all the campers came within their budgets in designing and building their dream-scapers !


Third camp

“STEM doesn’t have to be scary or boring. STEM is a lot of fun, clearly demonstrated by the spark in children’s eyes and their excitement”, said Moni Singh, aka Ms. STEM, Founder and President of STEM for Kids LLC.
