STEM3 Academy Fills Educational Void

Click-A-Brick STEM learning toy for boys and girls

We believe every child should have the opportunity to learn science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills, even children who have a bit of trouble learning.

That's why we're thrilled about the STEM3 Academy in Los Angeles.

What’s great about the STEM3 Academy is that it gives students with:

  • autism spectrum disorder,
  • learning disabilities,
  • ADHD,
  • developmental delays, and
  • emotional problems

a chance to study STEM skills in an environment that will cater to their unique ways of learning.

According to the STEM3 Academy’s website, approximately 20% of the population has a social or learning difference such as dyslexia, ADHD or autism while as many as 85% of adults with these learning challenges are either underemployed or unemployed.

With 8.65 million STEM jobs slated to be available by 2018 and a 28% increase in the number of students with disabilities enrolled in undergraduate STEM fields, STEM3 is definitely filling a void in the current education system.

Click-A-Brick STEM learning toy for boys and girlsIt’s filling this void by making it easier for students with learning challenges to study STEM-related subjects by tailoring classes to their individual needs.

The academy is run by The Help Group, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit dedicated to serving children, adolescents and young adults with special needs. The organization helps prepare them for careers in engineering, technology, cyber-security, biomedical, programming and IT.

Every child should have a fair shot at getting into a STEM-related field when they’re older. Some kids have special requirements for learning and the STEM3 Academy addresses those needs while also giving these kids a legitimate shot at having a career in the highly lucrative STEM fields in the future.

We’re obviously big proponents of children learning STEM skills and we don’t think having a learning disability should stand in the way of these kids developing these skills and getting the same job opportunities as everyone else.

Good for you, STEM3 Academy!
