Summary

STEMulate Change is a nationally-recognized STEM education program designed to ignite interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning and careers among at-risk youth ages 9-18. STEMulate Change is provided as an afterschool and summer program at community centers and schools serving low-to-moderate income and minority youth. The curriculum is uniquely based around American and global STEM icons who the students can relate to (i.e., women or minorities).

Challenge

Students are not choosing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) courses, majors, or careers locally or nationwide. There continues to be a lack of engineers and scientists in America. There is especially a lack of minorities and women in STEM related professions as well as a lack of qualified candidates for STEM professions in Delaware. The careers of tomorrow, will increasingly require strong abilities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or "STEM" subjects.

Solution

Using project-focused curricula, STEMulate Change engages at-risk youth in hands-on STEM education and activities, and ignites interest in STEM learning and careers during afterschool and summer hours.

Long-Term Impact

STEMulate Change is effectively engaging at-risk youth in STEM education as early as age 9. Many of these students do not have this type of opportunity at school. Youth develop a higher interest in learning about STEM subjects in school. Through learning about a STEM icon who is a minority or women, the youth can more readily relate to STEM careers and imagine themselves as a scientist, engineer or computer technician. This program helps to generate a skilled workforce to fill empty STEM jobs.
