Native Youth STEM Event
Join us this November for an amazing one day virtual STEM event for middle and high school youth. This exciting occasion will not only promote science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), but it also comes at a crucial time when our communities are seeing immediate, short-term and long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in the area of learning loss. This virtual opportunity will ignite passion and motivate young people attending Boys & Girls Clubs on Native Lands. Special guests, leading innovators at The Boeing Company and Verizon Wireless will share their experiences as Native professionals. They will talk about the companies they work with and share the contributions of Natives in STEM related fields. Participants will learn about and how to access scholarship and grant opportunities by the American Indian College Fund. This event will take place on BGCA’s free, safe and accessible MyFuture platform, which will be packed with fun and safe exploratory activities. We look forward to you joining us as we celebrate National Native American Heritage Month by recognizing Native contributions to STEM through our Native Youth STEM Event.
