DIVERSITY IN STEM
Learn about STEM programs and why students should get involved in STEM careers
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Diversity in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Project includes workshops and mentorship activities with presentations, resource packages, and workbooks to help encourage inner city BIPOC and female identifying students in pursuing STEM fields.
The workshops cover 5 core topics around STEM fields and higher education:
dealing with financial stress
learning about post-secondary education
entering the workforce
volunteering and its benefits
and taking care of yourself
The workshop is filled with discussions such as question and answer periods and activities such as guessing the estimated cost for post-secondary school in STEM fields. Another portion of the project is to do outreach work to discuss key resources for individuals underrepresented in STEM field.
DISCOVER STEM E-BOOK
Discover STEM covers a range of topics for students interested in STEM fields. Students may have questions about the kinds of programs available, financial support, and different post-secondary institutions. We reached out to students in STEM fields to share their experience and advice for you! We aim to empower students to pursue STEM fields, especially minority groups that are considered to be traditionally underrepresented in STEM education and careers.
