St. Elmo Brady S.T.E.M. Academy (SEBA), named after St. Elmo Brady, the first African American to earn a Ph.D. in chemistry was created to expose underrepresented 4th and 5th grade boys to S.T.E.M. using an innovative approach. First, participants engage in hands-on S.T.E.M. experiments and inquiry based learning modules. Next, participants learn about S.T.E.M. pioneers and inventors through weekly videos and exploration activities. They also interact with University of Illinois graduate and undergraduate students, faculty and staff to complete experiments. Last, fathers, male relatives and/or mentors attend session and conduct experiments alongside participants. The strength of SEBA is early exposure to S.T.E.M., positive role models and STEM mentoring.
