STEAM:CODERS inspires teaches underrepresented and underserved students and their families through Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM), in preparation for academic and career opportunities.
STEAM:CODERS, based in Pasadena, CA, meets the demands of students who are interested in STEAM. After hosting a series of one-day workshops and receiving positive feedback from parents and students, it was determined that there are limited resources and opportunities for students to learn more about STEAM. Due to the growth of educational and career opportunities in STEAM, it is crucial that students get on the computer science and math track, early in their academic tenures.
