The educational gap that is present within urban communities is causing a steep divide within the overall STEM industry. A lack of exposure, academic support and resources are hindering the possibilities of minority youth within the STEM industry. President Obama has noticed the void and gap and developed an initiative to combat it.Highlighting the notion that if America wants to compete with other countries our youth must be able to embrace a technological, scientific, mathematic and engineering platform to ensure our place as a world trailblazer. Tonight we are going to address why there is a gap within urban schools and how we can enrich youth with opportunities to advance within STEM.
Thursdays, 9 am Eastern, "The Tufts Get Going!" host Rosanna Tufts:
"The STEM of Success." If you look around certain neighborhoods and the only (legal) job opportunities you can see are at McDonald's or 7-11, meet Dr. Mel Butler and Frank Luca, the director and founder (respectively) of ACE (Alliance for Career and Education), which exposes kids to STEM careers! ACE arranges field trips for kids to meet leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in their own workplaces. Dr. Butler has been a consultant in helping to develop many projects and products including lightweight cement, the HOMV (better known as Hummer), Hot Pockets (yum!) and the Salute to Soul!
Join Rosanna every week to hear interviews with people who are making their dreams come true -- or have tools to help YOU do the same!

Dr. Williams has had an interest in medical research at an early age. After watching his grandmother struggle with breast cancer, he set out on a journey to find a cure. In college, Dr. Williams spent his spare time in the labs and library researching gene therapy. He won many awards for his efforts.
After receiving his Medical Degree from LSU School of Medicine in Shreveport, Dr. Williams became interested in a new concept: destroying cancer cells by using radiofrequency ablation of tumors. This procedure used the same minimally-invasive technique of using imaging to guide the needle straight into the tumor and instead of biopsying the tumor, it was heated and destroyed. This was already being done in the liver at other research hospitals, but was relatively new to other areas of the body.
It didn't take long for the word to spread about this new procedure, and Dr. Williams was performing ablations on many patients around the world.He won many awards including the Radiological Society of North American Resident / Fellow of the Year.
As one of the pioneers of cancer ablation, Dr. Williams founded The American Cancer Ablation Center in 2003 and began seeing patients at his office in Gulf Shores. He takes pride in being able to offer his patients the latest, most advanced medical imaging technology and procedures available to date.

Girls Can Do (GCD) provides positive role models who are everyday yet extraordinary women talking about choices, determination, hardships, failure, resilience, and success. The Girls Can Do event series started with a single speaker and a small idea in January 2014. Since then, it has quickly grown into a movement with a big vision and big plans to match. Its mission is to inspire a generation of possibility thinkers, and to encourage young women to have big dreams and pursue them. After all, what you want to do in life is always your best option, and anything is possible if you expect it. GCD hosts events around the country and the world, at low to no cost for young women and girls. These events are special days where girls come to engage, connect, and share experiences with amazing women speakers who are pursuing their dreams. They also partner with local organizations focused on girls programming to provide “next steps” for newly inspired Possibility Thinkers.
Ashby Fiser of Bainbridge Island is an Outreach Focus volunteer for GCD, and a UX Researcher and Designer in her professional life. Join us as we discuss GCD, empowerment, and women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
As a Master Educator Washington, DC native Ateya Ball-Lacy has become an ambassador for STEM education. One of the primary goals of President Barack Obama’s educate to innovate campaign is to broaden participation to inspire a more diverse STEM talent pool. Ateya Ball-Lacy has found an innovative way to educate and increase the talent pool of youth in America who have specific interests in pursuing science, technology, engineering, and math at the collegiate and professional level. She has created a reality-based game show called HOOD SMART: The Urban STEMulus Project. This reality TV series presents high school students with STEM challenges all for a chance to win a full ride scholarship to their dream university to major in STEM-related fields. The students meet their goals under the guidance of parents, tutors, judges, STEM experts, and surprise celebrity guests.
There are an array of STEAMing Hot Events & Programs happening all across the country relating to Science, Engineering, Technology, Math & the ARTS!!! Here are a few events, programs & even camps that we came across happening in the upcoming weeks and months centered around S.T.E.M.
