About this Activity:
Interested in STEM? Join MSA's SWENext Club!
Math and Science Academy’s SWENext Club’s purpose is to spark interest and confidence in students, especially females, pursuing STEM during middle and high school. This club aims to combat issues regarding confidence and gender ratio in careers and activities that are primarily dominated by males. Our mission is to inform and inspire students in STEM through initiatives within and outside Math and Science Academy.
In the past, Math and Science Academy’s SWENext Club has volunteered and organized outreach at local libraries, schools, and the Science Museum of Minnesota, leading engaging activities to promote STEM to students of all ages.. Our club often works with FIRST Robotics Competition Team 2175, the Fighting Calculators, and together have organized robotics workshops for local girl scout troops. We also hold annual engineering informational sessions at Math and Science Academy to inform students about engineering careers, with speakers being SWE representatives with valuable experience in the engineering field.
By joining SWENext, members will be associated with a well-respected organization (the Society of Women Engineers), gain access to scholarships, and make valuable connections.
At club meetings, members work in a collaborative team environment, participate in hands-on STEM activities, discuss community outreach, and maybe even learn to code Python, build a website using HTML/CSS, and create 3D models.
Our club is welcome to all students of the Math and Science Academy.
