STEM-tastic 2020 Highlights

Thank you for all your support In 2020! Last year brought on a lot of obstacles but nonetheless together we all persevered and converted to remote learning! Special shout out to Scholars' Playground in helping us bring our programs online. Despite the challenges we were able to make a huge impact in the Sacramento community such as hiring interns during Fall and Winter, providing MacBooks to Digital Skills participants, and we're excited to share during 2020 43 percent of the youth we served were girls!  These were just a few of the things we were able to accomplish, check out our 2020 highlight album on Facebook for a recap of our year at the academy!
