IMAGINE students connecting with each other and interacting with STEM professionals around the world
Today's students are the building blocks of tomorrow's workforce and civil society.
Taking an entrepreneurial approach, Acuteminds continuously adapts their tactics based on what is — and isn't — contributing to the goal of providing classrooms with 100,000 STEM teachers.

Have you ever considered becoming a mentor to an aspiring young scientist or engineer? The Global STEM Alliance (GSA) offers a unique opportunity to make a lasting impact on the life and future career trajectory of a student or early-career professional. Led by The New York Academy of Sciences, GSA recruits STEM professionals, postdocs and grad students to act as role models and mentors to STEM-interested students in communities around the world. We offer a range of volunteer options to accommodate busy schedules and varying levels of expertise.

Enriching classrooms with 100,000 excellent STEM teachers by 2021

Acuteminds unites the nation's top academic institutions, nonprofits, foundations, companies, and government agencies to train and retain 100,000 excellent STEM teachers to educate the next generation of innovators and problem solvers.
