Aggie STEM is a collaboration between Texas A&M’s College of Education and Human Development and the College of Engineering.

Donation in honor of James B. Kelly

James Burton Kelly was the true embodiment of what it means to be an Aggie. His generosity and selflessness was displayed in every one of his actions. He constantly devoted himself to A&M and contributed to the STEM program. James has and forever will be a fightin Texas Aggie.

Mr. Kelly annually gave the gift of camp to academically talented children who were unable to attend camp because of financial reasons. Your donation will be used to continue his legacy and his tradition of giving back to the community while supporting his beloved institution Texas A&M University. Thank you notes will be sent to all donors acknowledging their gift and the Kelly family will receive a note acknowledging the total donated and list of donors.

High-Tech High Heels and Aggie STEM join forces!

High-Tech High Heels and Aggie STEM join forces!
March 9, 2017 stefani

Aggie STEM is excited to partner with High-Tech High Heels (HTHH) this summer for an all-girls STEM summer camp. With this partnership, we are hoping to foster an environment that encourages middle and high school girls to pursue degrees in STEM fields. By providing a fun experience in hands-on STEM learning taught by role model female educators in STEM fields, we aim to motivate and inspire these young women to continue studying STEM.

15 years ago, a group of 30 women at Texas Instruments decided to make a difference concerning the overwhelming problem of the gender gap that is present in STEM fields. These women compiled their own money and set up a fund, “The Women of TI Fund,” and created a program that trained high school math and science teachers on gender equity in the classroom, built a physics camp for high school girls, and a program to train guidance counselors. When these women wanted to expand their reach outside of TI, they rebranded into High-Tech High Heels, which became a 501(c)(3) in 2013. Currently, they have around 100 volunteers who speak at schools concerning the gender gap, 30 volunteers who manage their fundraising campaigns, a board of 14 directors, and numerous donors. HTHH is working on their first major expansion out of North Texas to Silicon Valley in California.

High-Tech High Heels looks to fund programs that will be impactful and supportive of middle and high school girls’ STEM education. Aggie STEM’s past experience with our co-ed STEM camps and our data revealing the improvement of campers after attending our STEM camps really impressed HTHH. We are excited to provide a camp that results in girls being inspired to choose STEM fields, as well as being equipped to be successful in those fields
