Operating as a 501(3)(c) (non-profit) organization, we served around 60 students in 2016, over 100 students in 2017. over 200
students in 2018, and over 350 students in 2019 through our MESCE educational activities and events. Our plans for the future include reaching even more students and utlimatley creating a positive
impact on our local communities from different background and cuture. Believe or not, many schools don't provide enough STEM programs for students. Many students here
are unable to learn the STEM skills necessary to future challenges for different reasons: inaccessiable resources, lack of instructors and mentors, or failure to translate STEM interest in technology
to career pathways.
We are striving hard to provide appropriate and fun instructional supports including adaptive online practice and offline classroom discussion, activies, events, and competition so that students
of all ability levels have equitable access to the learning objectives.

Consider the following workplace projections: (credit to online resources)
- An Oxford study projects that 47 percent of current jobs in developed
nations will be replaced by automation as early as 2034.
- According to the World Economic Forum, 65 percent of children entering elementary
school today will work in jobs that don’t even exist yet.
- In the United States, 80 percent of fastest growing occupations require STEM skills, which
are skills the vast majority of American workers do not currently have.
- The percentage of boys ages 13 to 17 interested in STEM careers dropped from 36 precent in 2017 to 24 percent in 2018, according to a
survey of teens around the country from Ernst & Young and Colorado-based nonprofit Junior Achievement USA although the students who reponded to the unscientific online survey named technology as
one of the two key skills necessary to prepare them for the professions.
