STEAM ACHIEVERS is a Signature Program of S.N.A.C. Educational Services (STEAM National Achievement Collaborative), a 501(c)(3) organization.
STEAM Achievers’ principal objective is to bridge the STEAM education and academic achievement gap for students from diverse backgrounds by providing unique, innovative, real-world experiences in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.
- Our hands-on curriculum strategically fosters exploration along with the excitement for learning and subsequently pursuing STEAM pathways among girls and boys ages 5-18.
- Students build critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and collaboration skills through interdisciplinary, project-based learning activities that build interest and confidence in STEAM subjects in school and beyond.
- Designed to increase student motivation for further STEAM study, our multidisciplinary approach strategically helps students discover their potential for success in future STEAM careers.
- STEAM Achievers activities are aligned with Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Technology Applications and numerous TEKS for Math and Language Arts.
OUR MOTTO: DISCOVER. INNOVATE. IMPACT.
Discover, hands on, the joys of learning science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.), the pathways that lead to careers in these fields and more. Through our Signature STEAM Achievers Mentorship Programs, we provide much-needed mentorship from professionals in S.T.E.A.M. careers including doctors, pharmacists, engineers, software developers, computer science professors, architects, banking and finance executives. Our goal is to put the dots so close together, that scholars can visualize a career in S.T.E.A.M. while enjoying the exploration of what it would take to become a professional in these fields.
By teaching mastery in computer science concepts, critical thinking, problem solving, team building skills, demonstrating how technology works with science, engineering, art and mathematics, promoting an environment that allows for creativity and innovation and more, we prove to scholars that they have what it takes to thrive in S.T.E.A.M. in school and beyond
Real Social Impact & Strategic Mentorship:
Youth Give Back, Solve Real Community Issues in Real Time, with Mentorship from S.T.E.A.M. Industry Executives and Professionals
S.T.E.A.M. Achievers care deeply about the world around them and use their talent and acquired skills to make a difference in their own community. S.T.E.A.M. Achievers will be eligible to team up and give back by participating in the Biannual S.T.E.A.M. Achievers Purpose Hackathons (pH) as kid developers, testers or project managers and in the process learn about the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) used by most technology companies such as Verizon, Microsoft, IBM, Amazon and many others.
