Challenge

Science is fundamental for a country's technological and economic growth, but Mexico only allocates ~0.38% of its GDP to it. The quality of Mexican STEM Education has been ranked among the lowest globally by the World Economic Forum, with more than 50% of 15-year-olds ranking minimally competent. Limited resources and lack of mentoring results in 40% of high school students who don't know what degree to pursue, and only a tiny fraction have access to high-quality STEM programs.

Solution

Our program allows students to learn about cutting-edge scientific topics from international experts and offers both educational opportunities and mentoring to thrive in STEM areas. We offer hands-on and free science courses for hundreds of students every year, with equal participation of men and women as students and instructors. 30% of our students are first-generation college students. Our educational model is aligned with the UN 2030 sustainable development agenda.

Long-Term Impact

Participants in our program join our international network of STEM education. We strive to expand access to high-quality education for all students. We support the development of future generations of scientists and innovators in Mexico, provide career and professional advice, and nurture student interests in STEM fields. The Clubes de Ciencia Mexico program impacts students, instructors, organizers, and their communities, leading to a stronger STEM education ecosystem in Mexico.
