The Fishing School

Exposure to STEAM


STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) is a growing movement toward the future in education.  It encompasses creativity, critical thinking, and technology to propel youth into promising careers, fulfilling the nation’s need for innovative and skilled leaders.  TFS has carefully designed and expanded its programmatic STEAM offerings to address the academic, social, and developmental needs of children in order to support their success through high school and beyond.

TFS is helping to combat the following issues regarding gender equity in STEAM:

  • Girls have fewer out of school science experiences than boys.
  • Girls are much less likely to major in science-related fields in college.
  • Women remain underrepresented in the science and engineering workforce.

Serving over 400 youth in four schools across Washington, DC, our focus on STEAM ensures that underrepresented minorities and those in underserved communities are exposed to science, technology, engineering, art, and math at an early age.
