SSTEAM (Sports Science Technology Engineering Arts Math) Careers are pursued by those that have connected with them somehow personally. So we find ways to guide, watch over, and lead diverse youth in making their connection with a rewarding career, through hands-on experiences, corporate tours, speakers, and competitions to stretch their horizons and SSTEAM thought processes.
FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Challenge offer our youth an opportunity to participate in a project-based learning environment focused on 'Gracious Professionalism', networking, technology, and teamwork. This learning experience includes lessons in product development, design, manufacture, marketing, and teamwork; while challenging them to 'step way outside their normal box' and find ways to incorporate these lessons in life. Then we use what we learned to share with the next generation technology workforce.
We use sports such as softball to introduce minority athletes to scholarship opportunities and assist them with academic, NCAA, and recruiting process compliance and preparation. The entire conversation is centered around preparation for higher education and career opportunities; along with a lot of FUN! We graduated 5 players from the class of 2019, and all five are attending university in the fall, with one getting a FULL-RIDE Softball Scholarship!
We make ways to introduce diverse and/or under-resourced youth to SSTEAM (Sports, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) opportunities and education. As coaches and mentors we specialize in empowerment, experience, engagement, and FUN!
