About Rural Students in STEM, Inc.

Location:

2828 105th St, Aurora, IA 50607, US

Mission Statement

Rural Students in STEM seeks to provide resources and mentorship to improve access of rural high school students to careers and education in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Description

Rural Students in STEM was founded to help connect rural high school students to careers and education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). RSSTEM was founded in 2020 by a native Iowan who, while growing up on her family's farm, discovered a passion for understanding the brain and navigated the complexities of pursuing a bachelor's and then graduate degree in a STEM field. Recognizing the lack of resources for fellow rural students, she started RSSTEM to help fill the gap between rural and urban students in access to and engagement in STEM careers.

Rural Students in STEM's organizational goals are described in three phases: (1) Resource development and outreach, (2) mentorship, and (3) financial support. Our activities are currently focused on Phase 1. We hope to generate a portfolio of resources for rural students and initiate connections with rural schools and students. In phases 2 and 3, we aim to connect students to mentors and financial resources to aid in their educational journeys.

Beyond the resources we aim to provide to rural students, RSSTEM also looks to support our high school and collegiate volunteers in developing key experiences and supporting them in their initiatives. Check out our website (rsstem.org) to learn more and view our current resource collection.
