From DREAM to STEAM is a one-year project to increase the participation of underrepresented minority students in school and district level science fairs in metro Atlanta. Inspired by the stories of curiosity and perseverance in the National Geographic Documentary film Science Fair (2018), the DREAM to STEAM project will build local capacity to improve student participation and success in science fairs. The project will select high school teacher fellows from 24 schools in Atlanta, DeKalb, Clayton, and Fulton school districts to receive ongoing professional development and support, access to resources and incentives to support their leadership of local school-based science fairs.
