We're a youth led nonprofit focusing on providing a comprehensive STEM education to underrepresented youth. We connect this premier education to mental health, teaching our participants that their education doesn't have to come at the expense of their mental well being.
Here at STEMThink, we provide free, one-week camps during the summer, and teach middle school girls website development skills. We also include curriculum that educates participants on the importance of mental health, providing them with self-care skills and ways to cope with stress and anxiety. Our camps are held in three locations across Kentucky, in Eastern, Western, and Northern Kentucky. This year, because of COVID-19 concerns, our camps will be held remotely over the video conferencing platform Zoom. Participants will have the option of choosing between three sessions. All sessions will be held between 1-5 pm EST.
The Perfect Balance
Our participants will learn to code in HTML, the primary language used in the development of websites. Participants will then use their coding skills to develop an application designed to solve an issue in their community, connecting technology to activism.
STEMThink also hosts a three-day STEM workshop, where participants can learn advanced STEM concepts through hands-on experimentation (Canceled for summer 2020).
We provide effective techniques to our participants, teaching them how to deal with anxiety and stress, providing them with valuable skills that they can carry into high school and beyond. We also teach our participants time management, communication, and leadership skills, preparing them to act as effective change makers in their community.
