Latino STEM Alliance programs inspire and empower students interested in STEM education and careers by strengthening their mathematics and scientific knowledge and fostering their development of “21st century skills" like collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.
Latino STEM Alliance is focused on expanding access to STEM learning in Boston and Gateway Cities in Massachusetts. To inspire and empower children to achieve success in STEM fields, we:
Harness children’s natural enthusiasm for learning by providing hands-on learning experiences, team building exercises, and opportunities to showcase the products of their work
Partner with inner city schools and community organizations to augment classroom learning and much needed after-school day care activities with carefully programmed STEM enrichment opportunities
Partner with area universities, community groups, and employers to enrich our own programming and to provide the children with a vision of subsequent rungs on the STEM career ladder
Provide parents with opportunities to become involved in their students’ learning and encourage success
