If you’ve read my previous blogs, then you’ll know that I’m a major supporter of STEM education initiatives, especially those that assist minorities in STEM. As someone who is infinitely fascinated by the possibilities of STEM, I am eager to do anything I can to help as many children enter this fascinating industry as I can. Luckily, I am not the only person with the same mission. There are a variety of organizations looking to increase child minority representation in STEM, and I’d like to highlight a few of them here.
NACME (National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering)
NACME is a fantastic resource for minority children looking to become involved in STEM, particularly engineering. The organization primarily focuses on offering minority students scholarships. Every year, NACME hands out over $4 million in scholarships to both men and women of minority groups. NACME is always open to your generous donations. They accept monetary donations from businesses and individuals alike. This is a fantastic organization that is actively making a difference in STEM and they deserve all of the assistance they can get.
