About us

Saginaw S.T.E.M.

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.
