STEM Kids NYC is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides a year-round, intensive suite of STEM education programs for K-12 scholars. Our core programs foster STEM skills development, an understanding of the importance of STEM as a way to solve the world’s major problems, as well as an interest in STEM electives, majors, and careers. We’re comprised of educators, engineers, and computer and systems programmers.
We're an educational program that exposes scholars as young as 6 to a platform that inspires them to dream up what they want to make, then enable them to build or make it using our inquiry-based curriculum and talented pool of teachers. We seek to fill the education gap that lies between urban schools curriculum and the immediate need for schools to produce talent that is prepped to work in the STEM fields. STEM is where the jobs of both today and tomorrow are and American children in our communities need these opportunities. STEM Kids NYC builds skills to qualify students for the future opportunities that will make them employable and reduce their risk of becoming impoverished, going to jail, or being shut out of the future jobs market.
