Our Story

In the early 2000s, when founder Dr. Reagan Flowers was working as an educator at Jack Yates High School in Houston, she won a grant from NASA to implement STEM learning in her classroom. Using the engineering principles she learned over the years, Dr. Flowers developed a robotics project that taught students STEM in a fun and collaborative way.

 

Her students went on to build an extraordinary robot and showcased it at a local robotics competition. While this robot may not have been the prettiest or most advanced on the competition field, building it and competing against students with more resources and exposure to STEM sparked their competitive curiosity and desire to achieve. Her students were inspired and wanted to go deeper into STEM. It was this single opportunity that put Jack Yates High School on the path to create their first official robotics team and put the concept of C-STEM Student and Teacher Support Services in motion.

Mission & Vision

Our mission is to support teachers in delivering project-based learning that ignites curiosity and teaches Communications + STEM (C-STEM) skills to students historically underrepresented in STEM fields.

We are working to create a world where minority and economically disadvantage students have high quality communication and STEM experiences that catapult them into transformative spaces, creating opportunities for economic and social mobility.

Who We Serve

Our aim is to make STEM accessible to all students historically underrepresented in STEM fields, largely Black, Hispanic, and females of all ethnicities. We are encouraged everyday by the investments that committed educators and caring donors like you are making in C-STEM to ensure teachers and students alike can boldly engage in the world of STEM.

Our Goals

We believe STEM learning goes well beyond the classroom. We aim to leverage community resources to make STEM real for our students and equip them with the skills to solve everyday challenges in their communities and beyond.

Inspire students to become innovators, technologically proficient problem-solvers, and critical thinkers

Support teachers in delivering high quality, relevant STEM project-based learning content for students in grades PreK-12

Create opportunities for students to apply 21st century STEM and literacy skills in competitive environments

Connect classrooms to communities by leveraging expertise and touchpoints with professionals in the private and public sectors

Why C-STEM

Teachers, parents, and students love C-STEM for so many reasons. Here are just a few:

  • Implement fun, rigorous, relevant, project-based, and problem-based curriculum.

  • Get dedicated professional support to implement modules with your students.
