About NE STEM 4U

NE STEM 4U is student-run and volunteer-driven. We target students who are at a disadvantage in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning and provide a high quality after-school program.  Major goals of NE STEM 4U are to inspire and ignite interests in STEM-based topics. The K-12 students served by NE STEM 4U come from economically disadvantaged homes, and will most likely not receive the same level of educational opportunities as their more economically stable peers. By providing a high-quality, engaging, timely after school program, NE STEM 4U serves as a great asset to the Omaha community.
