Saginaw S.T.E.M. is committed to expanding high-quality Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and opportunities to all students, regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or zip code. We offer an array of cost-free programs for students designed to build interest in and knowledge of STEM, including all ages and experience levels, to develop a diverse STEM-literate workforce.
STEM skills are in high demand in today’s rapidly changing world. These skills are, and will continue to be, the tools necessary to address the complex challenges of today and tomorrow. Unfortunately, many students from minority and low-income communities have been underserved in STEM education and underrepresented in STEM careers.
Through a network of school-time, out-of-school programs, community-based groups, parent organizations, businesses and STEM professional organizations, Saginaw S.T.E.M. leads the way to identify common measures for high-quality STEM programs.
We inspire youth to generate new technologies and ideas through Problem, Place, Project (3P) based learning and innovations using hands on experiences.
Our programs are designed to engage directly with students and parents to create a learning environment that develops the critical thinking and soft skills necessary both within and outside the school setting.
We expose students to STEM based programs and a network of professionals where they benefit from expertise of scientists and engineers as mentors and advisors which ensures opportunities for long-term student success.
