Northside STEM District

More than a dozen of Minnesota's most accomplished African American education and community service institutions have established a partnership to inspire and nurture STEM talent in North Minneapolis.

The Northside STEM District builds a pipeline of talent that starts in preschool, moves into K-8, is complemented by summer and out-of-school experiences, and culminates with STEM credentials. This network’s collective emphasis on awareness, access, education, and training is preparing workers of today, tomorrow, and the future.
