Here are the facts:
According to USA News, Black students are largely underrepresented in high paying STEM majors. Majority of students choose majors that reflect their individual interests. With the representation being so low, we can only speculate that Black students just aren’t being stimulated by STEM activities.
Access. A lot of STEM programs aren’t located in our neighborhoods. Because of this, parents have to search outside of their comfort zone to locate a STEM program that can spark the interest of their children which in turn can develop into a genuine fascination. A genuine fascination can turn into a possible college major in science or engineering. We can definitely get behind that.
Why Sue’s Tech Kitchen
Sue’s Tech Kitchen was a vision by Zuckerburg that was brought to life by a team of tech experts, engineers, and scientists. It features “technologies from all corners of the modern imagination, empowering kids and adults to engage with tomorrow’s advances. Guests can expect interactive edible experiences for all ages that encourage healthy relationships with technology and inspire kids to embrace STEM skills in a fun and collaborative “snack-hack” concept”.
