    Increasing and Diversifying STEAM Student Pool

    Math is an important component of STEAM, and literacy is a part of every content area. In 2021, 80% of Black, Latino and economically disadvantaged students didn't meet math standards, and over 60% didn't meeting English standards. 70% of 5th, 6th and 8th graders and 65% of 4th, 7th and 11th graders didn't meet math standards. Equity demand, and our project will address the lack of math/literacy preparedness that prevents the majority of under-represented students from pursuing STEAM.
