Through engaging, hands-on activities presented in a fun, supportive environment, F.E.M.M.E.S. programs encourage students to learn and explore their potential in science, technology, math, and engineering (STEM). Our goal is to promote involvement in STEM by building curiosity and increasing confidence in students' academic skills so they may pursue their dreams without hesitation. Both parents and teachers often comment that after attending F.E.M.M.E.S. events, students become more motivated, participate more in class, and show a greater interest in school.
