Education is and has always been the solution. Despite the high amount of income inequality and lack of opportunities to lower-income students in the fields of STEM, Stemnova aims to increase educational equity by teaching our 10 week curriculum to schools and students all across Northern California as well as by distributing free open-source curriculum to organizations across the country and world. Since our founding in 2016, our curriculum has been custom tailored to actual classroom experiences and specific feedback from students themselves.
With the rising amount of environmental and medical problems plaguing today's world, our goal should be to educate the next generation to be able to learn and apply their knowledge to solve problems. Unlike other science programs, Stemnova strives to make education as conceptual and fun as possible, invigorating children’s inner curiosity. Currently, students are spurned away from the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Our lense of teaching opens their eyes to a future of problem-solving in the limitless field of science.
Created in the spring of 2016, our program was originally called Junior Science Olympiad (JSO). And in the spring of 2018, we renamed ourselves to be Stemnova, an explosion of all things STEM and bearing resemblance to beautiful, awe-inspiring phenomena: supernovas. But, in our case, the beautiful sight is students teaching other students.
