Happy Holidays from Team Beckage

What a year 2020 has been! We would like to thank everyone who helped make this unprecedented year a successful one. In lieu of traditional gifts this year, we have decided to direct our gratitude towards the following organizations in cities we call home for their efforts in encouraging education and innovation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) – particularly for girls and young women:

Western NY STEM Hub

The mission of WNY STEM Hub is to engage learners across Western New York to cultivate a love of STEM learning and curiosity about STEM careers by mobilizing key community partners in developing transformational programs that initiate a lifelong passion for science, technology, engineering and math.

Geeks Rule

Geeks Rule promotes the study of and engagement with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) among underserved youth. Based in New York City, Geeks Rule’s vision is to eliminate the racial, gender, and socioeconomic gap in the STEM fields in order to meet the growing need of STEM professionals thought mentoring programs in major cities across the United States

Esteem Girls Inc. STEM Academic Services

Founded in 2016, Esteem Girls Inc. is emerging as a ground-breaking opportunity for girls, specifically those from under-resourced communities and minority girls, in the Philadelphia metro area. Esteem Girls Inc.’s mission is to help address the local statistics, national trends, and standardized test scores in STEM, which are dramatically lower across young female students in Philadelphia public schools.

San Diego STEM Ecosystem

San Diego STEM Ecosystem’s mission is to create a San Diego where every learner is at the center of a rich ecosystem of connected STEM learning opportunities and STEM-supportive individuals.  San Diego STEM Ecosystem offers specialized programs tailored specifically to Women in STEM, children under 8, and students in grades K-12.  

Rochester Museum & Science Center

The Mission of the Rochester Museum & Science Center is to inspire a better future for all through curiosity, exploration, and participation in science, culture, and the natural world. RMSC helps foster enthusiasm for STEM fields by curating hands-on (and minds-on) exhibits, in-person and virtual field trips for local schools, and science, technology, engineering, and math-focused summer programs for eager young learners.

On behalf of everyone at Beckage, we wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season. We hope to be reunited with you in the New Year!
