Exposing Students to STEM Earlier 

The lack of black people in technology stems from the lack of STEM education. While America doesn’t produce a great number of white scientists, mathematicians and engineers, the disparity hits African Americans a lot stronger. African Americans received just 7 % of all STEM bachelor's degrees, 4 % of master's degrees, and 2 % of PhDs in 2009, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Thankfully, several extra-curricular programs like Black Girls Code are dedicated to teaching children and young adults from underrepresented communities. 

With this initiative promising to focus on youth at the beginning of their educational careers, students will become exposed to all that STEM has to offer in the classroom.
