The Importance of STEM Education

Technology is continuing to evolve at a rapid pace and it’s critical that our scholars are adapting alongside the ever-changing landscape. Being immersed in the STEM field prepares our scholars for adulthood by supplying them with the knowledge and skills to be problem solvers, researchers, and the ability to make informed decisions.

At Uplift, our goal is to completely close the achievement gap between children, regardless of their ethnic or socio-economic background. Providing our children with access to STEM opportunities, regardless of their zip code, is just one of the many ways we are ensuring a bright future for our scholars.

This past summer, scholars from Uplift Mighty Middle School and Uplift Atlas Middle School had the opportunity to take part in a hands-on interactive robotics camp thanks to the Melville Family Foundation and Ericsson. Watch the video below to learn all about the program and see first-hand the impact a STEM education has on our scholars.
