I have had the pleasure of participating in the STEM Academy sponsored by Children & Charity International for several years. My twin sons, Jaden and Jordan Jackson, now sixth graders, have been participants in the STEM Academy since they were five-year-old Kindergarteners.
They have not only adopted a thirst for STEM, but also gained additional resources. Due to the learning environment created by the STEM Academy through Children & Charity International, Jaden and Jordan were selected as two of one hundred students to participate in the Verizon Innovative Learning Minority Makers STEM Program for African-American and Hispanic Males, Sixth-Eighth Grade at the University of the District of Columbia!!!
The STEM Academy has not only added value to our lives, but also to the lives of other children in the District of Columbia and surrounding areas. Programs, services, field trips, extended learning opportunities that is provided through this program are key tools that I'm sure other families take advantage of. I look forward to my continued partnership with the STEM Academy and Children & Charity International. This program helps produce great scholars that will become the future leaders of tomorrow.
