“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” 
Nelson Mandela.

Alabama STEM Education will reach out to as many people as possible with in our local area via seminars, events, forums and educational newsletters. This should help to raise awareness of the importance of education particularly STEM education for future generations. Statistics show that many underrepresented and underserved communities stay behind continuously because of limited funds to train STEM projects of this magnitude. ASE, through governmental resources and charitable donations will combat this issue to make sure STEM training is affordable for all.  We will have quarterly seminars to keep the community aware of STEM, Expose’s will be held twice a year to inform the community about ASE’s progress and fundraising to give the opportunity to be part of this great cause. 


“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”- Nelson Mandela. A great man made this statement many years ago and today it yet holds true. Alabama STEM Education has taken the baton to train up a generation of people to cause significant change across the globe, through science, technology, engineering, and math. It starts with our community then their community and finally all communities teaching and growing one another for the same cause. Teaching critical thinking, and educating at an early age will create exponential results in 
underserved underrepresented communities, which will manifest a more sustainable and prosperous society.
