STEM E3

A- A A+

STEM E3The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) E3 program is a hands-on, real-world program emphasizing education, employment and entrepreneurship (E3) for young women of color in 5th – 8th grades using STEM technology. This program strives to provide education opportunities, career exploration, and mentorship for young students of color interested in STEM fields through jam sessions with local and national tech leaders and coding school-year cohorts and summer camps.

I was in 6th grade when I participated in STEM E3. I decided to participate because I was interested in learning something new. My experience with STEM E3 was meaningful to me because it gave me an idea of something I might want to do in the future, and it helped me gain confidence and new skills. After participating in STEM E3, I’ve been interested in STEM related activities and I do see myself being in more STEM and computer science related classes in the future. I personally do see myself pursuing a STEM or computer science related career in the future, and I thank STEM E3 for that.
