Mission

STEM Santa Fe advocates for, develops and provides STEM programming, mentoring and resources for all youth, especially under-represented groups in STEM, to realize their potential and expand their opportunities in a dynamic world.

Programs

We currently have three initiatives. We count on you to get involved.

I. School-based STEM programming: Currently at El Camino Real Academy

On September 1, 2016 STEM Santa Fe started a 2-hour weekly STEM Afterschool Club at El Camino Real Academy (ECRA). 5th-8th grade students interested in (1) hands-on STEM activities and (2) competing in STEM competitions and challenges are welcome to join. STEM Santa Fe provides programming and mentorship as well as help with fundraising and logistics.
