Pardon the intrusion. My office, the USC Viterbi School of Engineering’s STEM Educational Outreach Program, is piloting a new program that will teach Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Entrepreneurship to at-risk youth in our community. We have been approved to compete for the LA2050 Grant challenges! Various grant challenges will be up for public voting until October 25, 2016 at 5pm. The ten proposals garnering the largest number of public votes will be reviewed by a jury, which will select one winner.
I am reaching out to all my classmates, schoolmates, faculty and friends to ask for their support of our efforts to spark, nurture, encourage and support at-risk students’ interest, aptitude and efforts to pursue careers in STEM while helping to meet the Nation’s expected shortage of about 1 million college graduates in STEM fields by voting and sharing the message below to members of the committee
