Rather than teach the five disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEAM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
An educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
A support system that helps scholars and individuals understand and apply math and science content, the foundations for success in college and careers.

Square Root Academy is a nonprofit on a mission to engineer equity in STEM education. We are dedicated to educating underrepresented youth on the fundamentals of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) while emphasizing collaborative learning, innovation and academic excellence.
We work exclusively in Title I schools and low-income communities, targeting disengaged student populations - girls and kids of color - to expose scholars to the growing fields of STEM at no cost, while promoting creativity, leadership and academic excellence. We are working to expand our programming to serve more Sacramento area youth for the 2022-2023 academic year, with the goal of reaching 5,000 scholars, and we need your help to do it!
The Equation is Simple:
5,000 Scholars + Equity + STEM Education = A Brighter Future
