Making a Difference


The Academy Name

The Starfish STEM Academy name is derived from The Starfish Story. The story depicts how someone can make a difference in the life of another, regardless of how small or large the action may be. It doesn’t require that action be made with a large group of children, but rather we can make a difference in the lives of children one child at a time.

By putting theory into practice, it is our belief that we CAN and WILL make a difference in the lives of underrepresented females by providing opportunities, resources, and mentoring to better prepare them for the global STEM workforce.
