Sisters e S.T.E.A.M. was funded for two years through the Teacher Empowerment Grant (Teachers Leading Change). This is the first year that we are stepping out on our own. Please consider a donation, which goes directly to programming. You can also support us by ordering a Sisters e S.T.E.A.M. Beautistry sampler pack in our store

Fab Lab Campaign

Sisters e S.T.E.A.M. is looking to add a Fab Lab to support their learning in engineering. The Fab Lab would be used to make materials for their Beautistry unit - as well we to begin an jewelry line. Fab Lab's are a new learning tool in today's classrooms - but currently in Allegheny County there aren't any Fab Lab's that are open to students from underserved communities - the cost is simply too great. Our vision is that ourFab Lab would be available for outreach programming once it is complete. We wish to have a mobile fab lab and trailor that will support popUP programming throughout the county.

Sisters e S.T.E.A.M. is always looking for volunteers to support weekly or popUP programming. We are seeking volunteers who can support  our small group learning through either of our 6 units or through preparing for the local competitions we participate in.

Additionally, we are seeking volunteers in the fields of social work, psychology, or educational support for our eSTEAM curriculum. Sisters e S.T.E.A.M. is growing rapidly and we are always looking for honorary sisters (and even brothers) who would like to support our work.

As a university partner and honorary Sister, Dr. Temple S. Lovelace has supported the work of Sisters e S.T.E.A.M. from day one. Sisters e S.T.E.A.M. is currently a part of Youth Leading Change, a program under igniteCHANGE, which was founded by Temple. As an Associate Professor in the School of Education at Duquesne University, Temple supported two projects through a small grant. For the 2014 school year, SE served as a pilot program to support the work  of The Sister in Me. The culminating project for this work  was "We are Sisters e S.T.E.A.M." For 2015, Sisters e S.T.E.A.M. will participate in a youth voice project. 

Teachers Leading Change is a community of teachers dedicated to reforming education - from the classroom out. Sisters e S.T.E.A.M. was an inaugural awardee of the Teacher Empowerment Grant in 2013. Teacher Empowerment Grants are focused on improving the educational outcomes of African American students and students from underserved communities. 


Sisters e S.T.E.A.M. is currently run at the Woodland Hills Academy, a part of the Woodland Hills School District.
