Our Programs

Young Emerging Scientists STEM Program

4th-9th Grade Girls

STEM workshops are learned by doing where each session is designed to complete a project and links to a STEM career Troubleshooting is required during the STEM workshops.

We have 8 to 10 STEM workshops within a year (2 to 3 in the Spring, 4 in the Summer and 2 in the Fall) – 4hrs/workshop.

Annual Math Program

4th-10th Grade

The purpose of our Math programming is to improve students’ confidence and skills in foundational math concepts while still in elementary and middle school.  Studies tell us if the foundational math concepts are not learned, the skill gap continues to grow as students get older, therefore making advanced mathematical concepts harder to learn. If basic math concepts are not mastered the path to taking more advanced classes in mathematics is reduced in high school and STEM careers become less of an option in college.

College Intern Program

We partner with local colleges and universities to obtain student interns. The main requirement is to have a passion to work with youth and great communication skills. We do prefer students with a STEM major. Our college interns have varied responsibilities such as researching the latest STEM news and sharing on social media, creating designs for upcoming programming to troubleshooting equipment and curriculum. We accept applications on a semester basis. Send an email here info@jewelsacademy.org if you are interested! Applications are accepted every Spring and Summer Semesters (March – June).
