Math and Science AKAdemy

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 of our 2024 Sponsors and Donors, we say THANK YOU!!!
