Breaking Barriers: Citizens Science Lab Partners with YBMKQ to Boost STEAM Education for Black Youth in Underserved Communities

A partnership between the Citizens Science Lab and the Young Black Motivated Kings and Queens organization in Penn Hills is set to provide dozens of kids with STEAM education. Dr. Andre Samuel, founder of the Citizens Science Lab, led an experiment to highlight the activities that the young people will participate in five days a week at the community center. The focus is on increasing the number of Black scientists in underserved communities, as only less than 5% of PhDs in biological and life sciences are held by African Americans nationally.

The Young Black Motivated Kings and Queens organization offers after-school programming and summer camps for kids in elementary through high school at affordable rates for families. Currently, they serve around 60 kids every day after school with science programs. Families interested in learning more about how their children can join the after-school or summer programs can visit YBMKQ for additional information.
