About Get STEMulated

Don’t miss our upcoming summer and afterschool programs designed to expose youth to future careers in STEM!

Our Mission and Vision

Get Stemulated's mission is to empower youth through STEM. We envision a future where our future leaders believe they can change their world through STEM. We are a national evolving organization, offering year-round out-of-school STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programming for youth in grades 3-12 in Georgia, South Carolina, Texas, Louisiana and other locations across the country.

 

Founded in 2017, Get Stemulated is one of the more diverse programs devoted to empowering participants that would normally not get exposure to industries in the STEM fields. Our comprehensive programs are designed to engage, increase confidence, and introduce STEM careers to young people who have been historically marginalized by providing meaningful, hands-on STEM programming through after school, summer camps, and other community events.

The world’s greatest challenges need new STEM ideas and insights. Yet half of the world’s potential idea makers—underrepresented minorities—are discouraged from developing vital STEM ideas.

We encourage with more ideas from our participants that will create more solutions to benefit us all.

Get Stemulated's mission is to empower girls through STEM. We envision a future where all who identify as girls believe they can change their world through STEM. We are a national women-led organization, offering year-round out-of-school STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programming for girls in grades 3rd-12 in Georgia, South Carolina, Texas, Louisiana and other locations across the country.

 

Founded in 2018, Get Stemulated is one of the more unique programs devoted to empowering future leaders in STEM. Our comprehensive programs are designed to engage, increase confidence, and introduce STEM careers to youth who have been historically marginalized by providing meaningful, hands-on STEM programming through after school, summer camps, and other community events.

The world’s greatest challenges need new STEM ideas and insights. Yet half of the world’s potential idea makers—underrepresented minorities—are discouraged from developing vital STEM ideas.

We believe that more girls with more ideas will create more solutions to benefit us all.

At Get Stemulated, we cultivate a culture where risk is rewarded, curiosity is encouraged, and creativity is expected.

Get Stemulated participants are connected, brave, and resilient. Get Stemulated makes our talent pool more successful and inspires them to take on the world’s greatest challenges.
