Our founders created STEM + Youth, or STEMY, because they recognized the immense positive impacts that an engaging science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education had on their lives and wanted all students, regardless of background or gender, to be able to participate in the same types of experiences.
We began as an after-school club run by a few passionate individuals, but after seeing the tangible impacts our programs had on our high school, we realized how much change could be effected in the local community by expanding our reach. And from there, STEMY was born.
Our organization is run entirely by passionate high school students who, amidst busy school days and constant streams of homework, make the time to help us accomplish our mission. Learning from peers has been shown to be incredibly beneficial in education, and we hope that this allows our organization to be uniquely impactful in the community.
