I’m not sure I’d be where I am if I hadn’t had mentors and peers in Science Club who encouraged me to pursue what I wanted and helped me build the confidence to get there.
— Sophie, Junior Mentor

What We Know

  • An achievement gap exists between well-resourced and economically-stressed children from the moment they begin school.

  • Research on how children learn shows that learning that happens outside of the traditional classroom helps students see the relevance of academic subjects and leads to deeper interest, which in turn directly impacts achievement.

  • The achievement gap between black and Hispanic students and their white and Asian peers was evident in the 2017 Next Generation math MCAS scores

 

  • The number of white students whose scores exceeded the standards was four times higher than black or Hispanic students, and the number of black and Hispanic students who did not meet the standard was almost three times as high as white students.

  • Research shows that girls begin to associate boys with science and math as early as grade two, and middle school is often when stereotypes and harmful associations cause many girls to avoid STEM subjects.
