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. Our main focus is mentoring youth to enter STEM competitions and in turn help build perseverance and professionalism. STEM SANTA FE will also organize local STEM competitions and events as well as provide a STEM focused resource website. According to the U.S. Department of education, "Not enough of our youth have access to quality STEM learning opportunities and too few students see these disciplines as springboards for their careers." STEM SANTA FE will foster a supportive and celebratory STEM environment and get our youth excited about STEM career opportunities.
