Spelman College Reaches out to Elementary and Middle School Kids
about STEM
Spelman College has come up with a great way to get
young children, especially students of color, interested in
STEM and increase their number of science and math
majors.
The STEM Education Outreach Program, along with
MASTERS, are working to make science, technology,
engineering and mathematics reachable to young students
in metro Atlanta’s elementary and secondary school
system.
Inside Spelman wrote about both programs and what they
have to offer to elementary and middle school kids. Jennifer
Johnson, administrator of the STEM Education Outreach
Program, wants nothing more than to expand Spelman
STEM majors. She said when she was in school, Johnson
had many female role models who excelled in math and

science.
“It wasn’t a stretch to see myself as an engineer because I
was inundated with these images; that’s why outreach is
important.” Johnson said.
The MASTERS Program was founded by Christina Fennell.
Inside Spelman says that the program focuses on making
courses like math relatable to elementary and middle
school students, in hopes they will eventually pursue a
career around it and other similar courses. Fennell started
MASTERS while still in high school. She is now a sophomore
at Spelman, where she has re-launched MASTERS in
October.
These two programs are a part of other programs of the
community that have taken on this mission. In the eightweek period, Fennell and some Spelman students worked
with 20 third, fourth and fifth-graders of M. Agnes Jones
Elementary’s after school program. They would lead
students in projects that showed them how math can be
used on a daily basis.
The number of colored women in the STEM fields are low.
But they will soon rise with the help of strong female role

Writing is a passion for me ever since 2003.
While reading J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter"
series, I decided to try writing stories of my
own. Ever since then I have practiced my skills
from grammar and sentence structure, to story
pace and character development. I am
