STEM Campaign

Atlanta CARES is committed to fostering equitable access to STEM education. We  proudly initiated our STEM Campaign in 2010 to increase the number of underrepresented groups in the STEM pipeline. This transformative initiative is designed to empower middle  and high school students with immersive hands-on STEM experiences, enabling them to delve into the dynamic realms of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Through our meticulously  curated curriculum, students not only engage in stimulating hands on activities but also embark on a journey to explore diverse STEM career pathways and directly interact with  STEM professionals.
