The Empowering Students Through Experience and Mentorship(E-STEM) group of chapters aims to raise the next generation of leaders, by using STEM concepts.
E-STEM Chapters brings K to 12th-grade students together to learn about different careers, cultures, and exciting experiences outside of their communities. Additionally, E-STEM members prepare for college and the professional world through various workshops, groups, and conferences. All of the programs, events and competitions members participate in ultimately equip our them with the necessary tools to become the next generation of engineers, scientist, entrepreneurship, civic leaders and much more.
How Does E-STEM Work
E-STEM Chapters has three different levels of chapters to cater to the needs of students within an array of grades. Students participate in chapter meetings, typically once a month and attend experience days once a month during the school year (making two events per month). Each meeting focuses on different STEM topics while local experience days can range from visiting science museums, attending expos/conference or having professional development, entrepreneurship and college readiness workshops. Members also engage in local and national STEM competitions such as TMulti GP, Math Quiz Bowl and the Try Math a Lon(ACT math readiness preparation competition).

Cost & How to Obtain Funding
Each chapter has different fees, which can be found on chapter website pages. In most cases K-3rd grade students only pay $25 a year for programming as our 4th - 12th-grade students pay $80 a year for members.
However, students who sign up and participate in two-three approved fundraisers over the summer will have their membership fees waived completely(subject to change).
