BridgeUP: STEM

BridgeUP: STEM is an ambitious initiative designed to bridge the gender and opportunity gaps in computational science for girls and young women as well as boys and girls from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds. Hosted at the Museum through generous support from the Helen Gurley Brown Revocable Trust, BridgeUP: STEM has developed a distinct identity in the landscape of computer science education by embedding programming in the context of scientific research and communication to support participants’ college and career goals. The BridgeUP:STEM programs include a tuition-free intensive multi-year Brown Scholars program for high school girls and the Helen Fellowship, a one-year post-baccalaureate fellowship for women.

Mouse’s mission is to provide vulnerable youth with the computer science skills needed to enter and succeed in higher education and the high tech workforce. Mouse designs computer science and STEM curriculum on our online learning platform, trains K-12 educators, and engages students through the Design League and maker events. We are committed to fostering greater diversity and humanity in STEM and empowering youth -- and all those that educate them -- to access and amplify technology as a force for good.

Mouse’s mission is rooted in equity and inclusion to help close the access gap for low-income, minority, and female students in STEM, computing learning opportunities, and careers in tech. The courses on Mouse Create online learning platform are designed to help middle and high school age youth to develop STEM identities by engaging with relevant socially and civically important topics.
