About STEM The 100 Way:
The 100 Black Men of Greater Washington DC’s Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) The 100 Way Initiative will provide educational and enrichment opportunities and programs that will address the technological divide in the African-American and under-served community in the Greater Washington DC metropolitan area. The 100BMGWDC and its members will provide a consortium of mentors, as well as STEM/STEAM-focused extramural administrators, educators, and tutors dedicated to the enrichment of minority, female, and otherwise under-served students with expressed purpose of improving those specified students’ academic performance, perspective, and placement for current school year and academic terms moving forward while they remain participants within our specified programs.
STEM The 100 Way Vision:
This Initiative will position the chapter as a community cornerstone to garnering technological inclusion into the emerging global educational, industrial, and economic ecosystem through leveraging and brokering public/private partnerships to serve the immediate needs of the African-American and under-served community.
STEM The 100 Way Mission:
The aim of STEM The 100 Way Initiative is designed to create hands on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programs and activities in giving minority, female, and at-risk youth in underserved communities’ exposure to new experiences in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math to compete for academic scholarships, and help students enter into top colleges and STEM/STEAM careers in the future. However, our first and utmost commitment is to provide consistent programing for students to be exposed and trained by proven successful STEM methods, systems, and most importantly personnel and mentors. Minorities are severely under-represented in STEM professions. The 100 BMGWDC has implemented several STEM programs within the Washington DC area to address these issues.
