STEMed Labs is a non-profit organization based in Austin, TX dedicated to improving educational opportunities in our communities. Our goal is to serve as an incubator for novel, cross-disciplinary approaches to STEM education. We partner with schools, teachers, parents, and industry to build a sustainable, grassroots model of delivering innovation in education.
We are very happy to announce that STEMed Labs’s STEMbridge program was funded as part of Akins High School T-STEM Academy’s summer programming by a grant from the KDK Harman Foundation. The grant sum is $56,000. Thank you KDK Harman!
This represents a milestone for Akins High School and STEMed Labs in a partnership that will ensure the continuation of the most rigorous, college-ready summer computer science program for High School students in Austin. The course covers computer architecture, material typically taught to Electrical/Computer Engineering and Computer Science undergraduate students in university.
In light of this announcement, applications for the program will open shortly from now. Please be on the lookout for an announcement when they will go live. We are looking forward to share this unique experience free of charge with our Central Texas students this summer.
