PROGRAMS

YOUR SCHOOL DISTRICT OR ORGANIZATION CAN PARTNER WITH STEAM THE STREETS FOR A LONG-TERM PROGRAM OR START WITH SMALLER ENGAGEMENTS SUCH AS SCHOOL ASSEMBLY SHOWS.

PARTNER WITH STEAM THE STREETS IN BUILDING BRIDGES TO CAREERS FOR BLACK AND BROWN YOUTH.

Whether in-person or virtually, we have several customizable programs to offer.
As a result of COVID-19, we have transitioned many of our programs to a virtual space.

We work with educators & administrators to provide a responsive mix of in-school and after-school programming that exposes students to future possibilities, builds career skills and self-confidence, and helps students see a place for themselves in STEAM careers.

We provide a variety of options that expose young people to future possibilities, helping to build career skills, self-confidence, and a vision for themselves in STEAM careers.

Program components:

SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES

Play Video

We curate 60-75 minute career awareness shows that we call “the adrenaline shot of vision.” Presented by Youth Engagement Specialist, DJ Anghelli, our show packages career technical education in a relevant, artistic vehicle to reach youth where they’re at. We use a mix of live performance, slides, videos, interactive teaching, and motivational speaking to educate students about booming career paths across the STEAM spectrum.

GUEST SPEAKER SERIES

We coordinate classroom visits by diverse industry professionals sharing their story and occupation. Through these sessions, we aim to expose students to various STEAM careers and help connect academics to careers. Our staff help curate the experience and facilitate a meaningful discussion where students can ask questions and connect on a deeper level.

ACTIVATION WORKSHOPS

Whether in-school or after-school, short sprints or year-long programs, our workshops provide hands-on, project-based learning environments where students can express themselves and inspire their peers.

 

PARTNERSHIP PROGRAMS

We work with schools and districts on year-long engagement programs that lead to impactful results. We provide a responsive mix of in-school and after-school programming that has life-changing impacts on students and in turn improves school performance.

“STEAM Powered” Video Series

We co-produce a profile video series where diverse professionals share their stories and provide tips and advice. So far, we’ve featured engineers, designers, and data analysts who work at Pandora, Adobe Systems, Pratt & Whitney, and Sandia National Laboratories.  Along with distribution on Youtube, social media, and list serve, “STEAM Powered” videos are featured in our school assembly shows.

Our philosophy is that if we expose youth to numerous diverse role models, connect careers to
things that they’re interested in, and engage them in hands-on technical and artistic
programming, then they’ll have a vision of what they can become, and therefore be more
invested in their educational journeys going forward.

We are honored by the opportunity to educate, empower, inspire and activate underrepresented
youth to be a part of the expanding STEAM landscape and economy.

Our Approach

Based on 21 years of experience in reaching youth through media arts and a culturally responsive programmatic approach, we offer engaging and comprehensive programs around STEM/STEAM as part of a bigger vision to help close the employment and diversity gaps in the technology sector.

OUR GOALS

  • To spark students’ interest in STEAM through culturally responsive and relevant methods.
  • To expose youth to various STEAM careers.
  • To inspire students by featuring success stories who come from similar backgrounds.
  • To activate diverse students on a STEAM career path through innovative programming.
  • To make connections to what students are learning in schools to real world employment.
