STEM Mentoring and Education Programs
The 1000 Girls, 1000 Futures Program pairs motivated, enthusiastic female mentors with smart, STEM-focused high school girls from around the world, to help them develop essential 21st century skills.
The Junior Academy recruits STEM experts to coach teams of talented, highly motivated students as they compete in science & technology challenges sponsored by industry-leading companies. Students and mentors can participate from anywhere in the world, connecting with one another via Launchpad, our interactive challenge platform.
New York City is a leading market for STEM jobs, and yet many children here have never met a “real” scientist. That’s why the Academy is working to put a scientist in every underserved public middle school across all five boroughs.
Sponsored by United Technologies, this exciting initiative engages students, teachers, and STEM professionals to identify and inspire the next generation of STEM talent. The program offers free educational resources, one-to-one mentorship, online courses, and the opportunity to compete in scientific & engineering challenges.
The Global STEM Alliance now offers online and in-person professional development for K-12 educators. Training is available for both individual educators and for groups, all created in alignment with research-based principles and STEM teaching best practices.
In today's global information- and technology-driven economy, successful individuals must be both STEM literate and equipped with 21st-century skills. The STEM Certification Program addresses this need by reviewing and certifying materials aligned with our STEM Education Framework.
