New Partnership Set to Boost STEAM Education in Black and Underserved Communities

A new partnership between the Young Black Motivated Kings and Queens organization in Penn Hills and the Citizens Science Lab will provide dozens of kids with STEAM education over the next five years. Dr. Andre Samuel, founder of the Citizens Science Lab, recently spearheaded an experiment that showcased the types of activities the young participants will engage in at the community center on a daily basis.

Dr. Samuel emphasized the importance of this partnership for black and underserved communities, highlighting the lack of African Americans holding PhDs in the biological and life sciences nationwide. By introducing more black students to the field of science, the hope is to address issues that directly impact their communities.

The Young Black Motivated Kings and Queens organization offers after-school programming and summer camps for children in elementary through high school at an affordable cost for families. With approximately 60 kids participating in their daily after-school activities, the addition of science programming will enhance the educational opportunities available to these students.

For more information about enrolling your child in the after-school or summer programming offered by Young Black Motivated Kings and Queens, visit their website.
