Math and Science AKAdemy

Raising the Standard Foundation 17th Annual Girls Math and Science AKAdemy on Saturday, April 29th at Atwood McDonald Elementary in Ft. Worth.

Women make up only 28% of the workforce in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and men greatly outnumber women majoring in most STEM fields in college.

 

Through the AKAdemy, girls have the opportunity to explore careers in math and science by participating in hands on workshops that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.  The classes are facilitated by community volunteers, working professionals, and educators from various school districts that provide their time and resources as instructors.  We provide the proper role models in hopes of generating the interest so that young girls will pursue more STEM-related courses.  It is up to us to provide hands-on experience and encouragement to our students in order to change the footprint of the current statistics.

To all our Sponsors and Donors, we say THANK YOU!!!
