Advancing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is a critical focus for The August Foundation. We know firsthand the importance of educating our young people in these areas. Our future success – and our nation’s technological advantage – depend on a constant supply of highly trained, highly capable technical talent.
We believe strongly that advancing STEM education requires collaboration among industry, educators, policy makers and families. The August Foundation is committed to working with these groups to develop programs that educate and inspire tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and mathematicians.
We seek to empower young people to lead healthy lives, become advocates for the environment and engage with technology and the arts. That’s why we’re proud to offer this program to low income students that instill a lifelong love of learning in every discipline.
The youth have unlimited potential. Engaging youth in science, technology, engineering and math is critical to ensuring that tomorrow’s leaders are interested in and prepared for some of the careers that lie ahead. For this generation that could change the world, we are offering free science classes to students from low income families that have fallen behind because of the pandemic and not being able to work with scientific equipment in the classroom.
To help address these challenges and strengthen the workforce pipeline, The August Foundation is so very proud to offer free STEM camp to students from low income communities and that are high school aged. We are committed to focus on student achievement, teacher development, and gender and ethnic diversity.
