The Northshore STEM Coalition and STEM NOLA have joined forces with Chevron’s Gulf of Mexico Business Unit and TIES, an organization focused on addressing opportunity gaps in education, to launch Chevron: Fueling Math. Chevron: Fueling Math was developed with input from dozens of educators, families and community leaders and made possible through $75,000 in funding from Chevron. Imagine Learning is also providing support for the initiative. The program will work to raise the public’s understanding of the role math plays in everyday lives, develop a team of volunteers to mentor and tutor local middle school students and provide meaningful learning opportunities to spark students’ interest in math. Led by Southeastern Louisiana University and Northshore Technical Community College, Northshore STEM Coalition increases community awareness and interest in STEM by promoting and creating STEM events and supporting out-of-school programs in the Northshore region.
