Millennium Fellowship Project: STEM Spark
STEM Spark is a program that helps advance STEM education to a socioeconomically disadvantaged audience. This program will reach out to school students in the Phoenix area and teach them about careers in STEM as well as scientific experimentation through hands-on demonstrations. STEM Spark will hold lessons regularly across a few locations with a goal to enroll at least fifty students. The project will advance the UNAI goal of "education for all" while also encouraging interested students to pursue careers in STEM.
