Means Is Empowering Young Girls In Underserved Communities
Jacqueline Means, also known as the “STEM Queen,” has spent the last year amplifying her efforts to serve the younger community.
Since the age of 12, she has exposed young girls in underserved communities throughout the state of Delaware to the world of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through her Wilmington Urban STEM Initiative.
Already 6,500 girls have been helped across schools and community centers through educational programs, hands-on experiments, and her Girls Empowerment STEM Events.
“STEM is a heavily white male-dominated field.
