Frequently Asked Questions
How do I sign my child up for STEM Scholars?
If your child goes to Dickinson K-8, MLK K-8, Alger, or Southwest Community Campus our spaces are first-come, first-serve.
How do I sign my child up for Sankofa STEM Academy?
Our spaces are limited and current STEM Scholars are offered first availability.
Can my child participate in STEM Scholars if they do not go to one of those schools?
Unfortunately, no. Our spaces are very limited and our focus for STEM Scholars is the students with the least access to resources.
Can my child participate in Sankofa STEM Academy if they do not go to one of the listed schools?
Yes. Spaces are limited, so we offer our current STEM Scholars first availability, but remaining spaces are available to others.
How much does it cost to participate in STEM Scholars or Sankofa STEM Academy?
Our educational opportunities and programs will always be free for students at our partner schools and students who receive free or reduced lunch. For questions about the cost to students not meeting either of those qualifications, please contact us.
