Saginaw S.T.E.M., a 501c3 organization, is committed to exposing, inspiring, and engaging members of the community, fostering interest and involvement into the world of STEM.
We design and deliver learning opportunities, activities, programs, and events to all STEM stakeholders, with an emphasis on under-served communities, across the city. Participants will benefit from the necessary training groundwork to stimulate and adopt 21st Century skills of Communication, Collaboration, and Critical Thinking.
Saginaw S.T.E.M. understands that an effective community-based STEM program must be inclusive, yet focused enough to reach the people where they are, on their level, in order to take them to where they need to be to compete productively, and to succeed in life.
Our mission is to grow, engage, expose, and inspire future Innovators, Creators, Makers and Entrepreneurs. We strive to help members of the community to learn about opportunities in the fields of STEM.
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.
Our goal is to build a community of resourced and empowered individuals who see, understand, and embrace education and business ownership as a path to success. We accomplish this through a variety of avenues with a foundational understanding that has meaningful impact on character and career that will resonate for generations to come!
