STEM Journal Club- This program aims to develop STEM communication and literacy skills for Metro Atlanta high school students from ethnic and racial communities with historically low participation in high-level STEM research competitions . Participants will engage in scholarly research, read and analyze STEM literature (journals), and gain exposure to relevant concepts to spark their interest in STEM Research. The final project for the STEM Journal Club participants is the creation of a podcast episode based on a STEM journal article, which will be featured on our SEM Explained podcast . It is a hybrid program with digital and in-person learning opportunities that take place from October through May.

The guest lecturer for the STEM Journal Club is a STEM Researcher that during a virtual journal club session leads discussion about a journal article in their area of research with the students. The guest lecturer will also speak with the students about how reading and analyzing journals guides their STEM research.

Mission Statement

SEM Link’s mission is to strengthen the self-efficacy of K-12 students to pursue STEM careers by exposing them to positive adult role models from the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) community that increase students' awareness of STEM careers and encourage their participation in STEM Research through digital learning and hands-on activities.


Science, Engineering and Mathematics Link Inc. (SEM Link), is a tax-exempt national nonprofit organization that was founded in 2005 by Tokiwa T. Smith in Atlanta, Georgia on the premise that exposure to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) community is critical to K-12 students pursuing STEM careers. Hence, the organization being named SEM Link, because the essence of our work is connecting youth to the STEM community for youth to provide them with positive adult role models in STEM. Our programs and events increase students’ awareness of STEM Careers and encourage their participation in STEM Research through digital learning and hands-on activities.
Since the organization’s inception over 500 STEM professionals have exposed over 10,000 youth to over 50 different STEM career paths as well as supported hundreds of young STEM researchers. SEM Link currently offers programs in the Atlanta and DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia) metropolitan areas.
