The 100 Black Men of Greater Washington DC’s Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics initiative, STEM The 100 Way, provides educational enrichment opportunities to address the technological divide in African-American and other under-served communities in the Greater Washington, DC metropolitan area.  The goal of the STEM The 100 Way is to offer a hands-on STEM program and activities, and to provide exposure to new experiences in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math.

 

The 100 is excited to continue its partnership with National Collegiate Preparatory Public Charter High School in Washington, DC’s Ward 8.  The students at NCP-PCHS, and of other DC high schools, must meet the requirements of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), an exam which has been adopted by the DC State Board of Education. In addition to English, PARCC calls for a certain level of proficiency in mathematics, an area in which marked improvement is needed.

 

The STEM The 100 Way program supports NCP-PCHS students by providing increased focus on Algebra, Trigonometry, and Geometry concepts, as well as English Language Arts.  The program runs January through April and is held every Saturday from 9 am-1 pm.  This year the program will conclude on the last Saturday prior to the students taking the 2018 PARCC exam.

 

STEM The 100 Way prepares students to:

 

  • Perform on the PARCC exam
  • Graduate on time and in good standing
  • Compete for academic scholarships
  • Enter top colleges and universities
  • Pursue STEM careers in the future
