Did you know only 16% of high school seniors are proficient in math and interested in STEM careers? With those kinds of numbers, Astellas's eductional outreach program, ScienceWoRx, was born to crank up the number of junior high students interested in science, technology, engineering, and math. To begin the process, a logo was developed as well as a website that works as an information hub for partners and participants.
Furthermore, a signature program, Rural Stem Project, was conceived to target rural communities and increase access to STEM education.
As a result:
• 53,762 U.S. schools receive Science WoRx partner programming
• 2,624 Illinois schools receive Science WoRx partner programming
• 5,342 California schools receive Science WoRx partner programming
• 333 U.S. schools receive hands-on Science WoRx partner programming
