What is STEMpact2020?
Wichita was a finalist for the US2020 City Competition in 2014. US2020’s City Competition challenged communities to develop plans to dramatically increase the scale and quality of mentorship between professionals working in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and students underrepresented in the sciences.
STEMpact2020 is an organization that is passionate about the future of our technical community. Our local industries rely on a pipeline of students who are interested and excited about STEM careers. Wichita has a high concentration of STEM professionals, and our mission is to encourage them to become mentors for the younger generation. Our goal is to have 20 percent of Wichita STEM professionals involved in high-impact mentoring by the year 2020.
