Join us for a holiday party for a cause!
African Americans and Latino students are disproportionately underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Comparing African American and Latino STEM college graduation rates to those of white and Asian American students, this disparity has resulted in an estimated 140,000 fewer college graduates with degrees in STEM entering the workforce each year (http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/wmpd/2013/). This has serious implications for American competitiveness and national security.
The minimum donation for this event is $20.00. All proceeds will benefit the Howard University Middle School for Mathematics and Science.
Your donation will go directly to support the Howard University Middle School for Mathematics and Science.
