Introducing EduSTEM (edusteminitiative.org): Educate, Encourage, Empower

EduSTEM: Educate, Encourage, Empower

EduSTEM is a international ​youth-led organization ​increasing diversity in STEM by empowering youths of underrepresented backgrounds to pursue STEM for social good through original STEMX curriculum such as STEMXPoliticalScience, STEMXEntrepreneurship, and more.

As one of the only youth-run STEMX initiatives in the world, EduSTEM has mobilized young leaders in STEM globally, tackling educational inequity through free summer camps, events, and workshops for minority youths. ​

Now, in an innovative collaboration between STEM-Away and EduSTEM, we are making high-quality EduSTEM curriculum accessible to all via the STEM-Away platform.
