BridgeUP: STEM

Bridge up students working on their digital programs in small groups in a media lab

AMNH’s newest education program, BridgeUP: STEM is focused on the intersection of computer science and science. This portfolio of programs includes:

  • tuition-free intensive 2+ year Brown Scholars program for high school girls
  • the Helen Fellowship, a one-year post-baccalaureate fellowship for women
  • introductory middle school institutes covering a range of computational topics, like climate change (full-tuition scholarships are available; email institutes@amnh.org for more information)
  • an annual overnight hackathon for professional developers and students addressing computational challenges in a given scientific discipline

This program is generously funded by the Helen Gurley Brown Revocable Trust for the American Museum of Natural History’s BridgeUP: STEM initiative.
