What is STEME?


A new approach to STEM education was created by Kyesha Ruffin, founder of Science In The City Inc. The extra E stands for Entrepreneurship. Students study STEM through the lens of an entrepreneurial endeavor. The standard based curriculum embeds the problem-solving skills necessary to be a proficient STEM entrepreneur. Financial Literacy is explicitly taught with real-world applications. In addition, students connect with industry professionals to hone their presentation skills in a “Shark Tank” Themed culminating project.
