Bringing STEM into Dance

  • March 18, 2019

Students at Uncommon Collegiate Charter HS (Brooklyn) are challenging stereotypes by combining dance, coding, and engineering in the STEM From Dance Project. According to research, women occupy about 10 to 30 percent of the #STEM industry. Among people of color, that number falls to about 4 percent. Programs like these not only expose young women to industries and fields dominated by men, but they also teach women the various ways STEM can be combined with the humanities.
