But first, they must embrace science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to build the skills that will serve as their tool set for the future. For that to happen, we must work together to ignite their curiosity and get them excited about STEM in their everyday lives.
So we ask you to join us in connecting the dots between learning and life so that we can provide pathways for kids to achieve today and lead tomorrow. Whether inspiring interest in STEM subjects and careers with Discovery Education's free STEM resources, becoming a STEM mentor, or co-viewing STEM programming on Discovery Channel and Science Channel, you can join our mission to propel today's students to success in college, careers, and citizenship.
Inspiring Students through STEM Mentorship
Discovery has joined the movement to connect the dots between the classroom and the real world by teaming up with US2020, an organization with the mission of matching 1 million STEM mentors with students at youth-serving nonprofits by the year 2020. As part of our mentorship program, we're helping students to understand the importance of science and technology in pursuing a career in broadcast television. We'll be connecting students with Discovery STEM professionals in broadcast engineering, information technology, and broadcast operations exposing them to the many STEM related career opportunities that exist in the rapidly evolving world of media.

Igniting the Spark: Discovery Education STEM Camp
While after-school learning and summer programs provide rich opportunities to keep students inspired beyond the classroom, we know that unequal access to these programs can contribute to disparities in student achievement.
As part of our commitment to STEM education for all students, we are excited to announce the launch of the Discovery Education STEM Camp - a dynamic series of standards-aligned curricula available at no cost to schools, districts, non-profit organizations, and parents for use as part of summer camps, after-school STEM programs or wherever support is needed.
STEM Camp combines hands-on labs, engineering challenges, digital investigations, and more - all designed to immerse kids in the grand challenges of science set forth by the National Academy of Engineering.
