“One of the biggest issues in education, if not the biggest, is a lack of student voice in the way decisions are made.”

In May 2023, Chief Science Officer Alumni Freya Abraham told a standing-room-only crowd at the STEM Learning Ecosystems Community of Practice in Florida that it was time to listen to youth about real world issues—issues that will affect the lives of her and her peers.
She envisioned creating space for voices like hers to be heard, and where a path to action would be possible. Now, through the 2024 Changemakers in STEM Virtual Youth Congress, Freya’s vision is becoming a reality that you can join!
Join the Movement
Freya’s goal requires big-picture thinking, which means we’re aiming to gather 1,000 middle & high school students grades 6th-12th to hold conversations with business, community, and education leaders in the STEM sphere around the following topics: Sustainability, Tech for Good, Aerospace Engineering, and A.I.
Be sure your community joins SciTech Institute, STEM Learning Ecosystems Community of Practice and TIES in this extraordinary opportunity!
Confirm your participation by Friday, January 5th.
Know other STEM Ecosystems, communities, or organizations that would be interested in our event? Please share this website with them and help us meet the goal of 110+ communities and 1,000+ youth!
