Cincinnati's Summer Of STEM For High School Students Is Underway

en.wikipedia.org, available for use

According to the National Science + Math Initiative, only 44 percent of U.S. high school graduates are ready for college-level math and 36 percent are ready for college-level science. 

Summer of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is a new Greater Cincinnati STEM Collaborative initiative that will allow students to explore STEM learning and careers over the summer. The initiative aims to increase the number of people aware of the opportunities open to students who pursue STEM education and make STEM summer programming available to more K-12 students, especially those who are disadvantaged.

Here to talk about Summer of STEM and what it has to offer are Director of Talent Pipeline Initiative at Partners For a Competitive Workforce, Sean Kelly; President and CEO of ArtsWave, Alecia Townsend Kintner; and Director of Development at the Cincinnati Observatory, Anna Hehman.
