Innovate Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Explore (iSTEM-Xe) Project: Encouraging STEM Careers with Innovation
Welcome to the Innovative Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Explore(iSTEM-Xe) Project at Morehouse College. iSTEM-Xe engages minority students (rising 6th, 7th and 8th graders) in a long-term (3-year) STEM technology program that will include a four-week Summer Program, Hands-on Field Experience, and Saturday Academy during the academic year.
The program utilizes a project-based framework designed to provide students with challenging technological learning experiences. The project will expose students to innovation and creativity in STEM disciplines within the context of real-world problem-solving scenarios utilizing entrepreneurial concepts in order to promote academic success in middle school and high school and prepare students academically to attend a college or university. The program will begin summer 2019, and conclude following the summer 2021 session.
Check out what we've done thus far.
Increase student awareness and knowledge of educational opportunities and STEM careers
