“Jewels Academy taught me that women can be exceptional
professionals in STEM because gender is not a determinant in
my ability to succeed.”

Oule, Des Moines, IA

“Jewels Academy inspired me and gave me the boost I need to keep treading on.”

Carrington, Macon, GA
 

“The people in these programs have helped pave my path
towards the future and as I looked back I am proud to be the
person I am and the person I will be in the future.”

Irvine, Des Moines, IA
 

“After my first summer in Jewels Academy I was fired up and
ready to dive deeper into my interest in science”

Harvey, Galesburg, IL
 

“I value our partnership with Jewels Academy because they help us to understand the types of programming that will help young women see themselves as leaders in STEM fields.”

Amy Colbert

 

 

“As I recall the time I spent in Jewel Academy Workshops I can appreciate now, more than I did then, the way I was pushed to excellence. The Jewel Academy Workshops allowed me to explore fields and activities my school never provided. Giving me a safe space to explore the STEM field without the fear of being forced to embrace the stereotypes that were being put on girls. “
