TE Connectivity Foundation continues global effort to increase access to STEM education (Watch Feature Video Above)
The TE Connectivity Foundation announced it will continue its support of three nonprofit organizations that advance its mission of connecting and strengthening global communities through access to technology and engineering for all, with a focus on women and underserved populations, by providing $1.3 million in grants. The grants support the UN Foundation’s Girl Up, SMASH, and FIRST Global.
Girl Up, a global leadership development initiative started by the United Nations Foundation, now seeks to incorporate STEM into its overall leadership development programming – an evolution from the TE Foundation’s first grant which provided support for separate STEM activities.
SMASH has a stated goal of providing access to technology and engineering for underserved students of color and has a proven track record of success. Its free, multi-year college prep program, SMASH Academy, currently operates in several regions in the U.S.
FIRST Global runs high-profile, international robotics competitions designed around solving major global challenges with high school aged participants who are ethnically, socio-economically and gender diverse, inspiring not only those who participate, but also those who watch and follow these events around the world.
