DCI STEM (Youth Program)


Nationally, gender differences in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education participation are already visible in K-8 education. In higher education, women represent just 35% of all students enrolled in STEM-related fields of study, and often leave STEM disciplines in disproportionate numbers during their studies, their transition to the world of work, and even during the course of their career cycle.

DCI STEM is committed to changing this equation by getting and keeping youth interested in STEM subjects early on. Through hands on experiential learning, mentorship, and expanded learning opportunities, DCI STEM (formerly the grant-funded pilot initiative, Snap The Gap™), is designed to promote equity in STEM.
