About the Program

The USC Viterbi K-12 STEM Center has been designated by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) as PK-12 Affiliate within the AISES family. The AISES program aims to increase interest, curiosity, and motivation for native American and indigenous students to continue learning STEM and Engineering using engaging technological tools for hands-on, creative activities, projects, and challenges. The program is an after-school and out of school time program led by USC student assistants.

The K-12 STEM Center develops strategies and builds initiatives to meet the needs of a diverse population, specifically in efforts to increase the representation of female students and African American/Black, Hispanic/LatinX/Latine, Native/Indigenous students in its STEM programs, such as AISES. Some of those efforts include outreach, mentorship, and scholarships. However, all STEM Center programs are open to all students in compliance with Federal and State law, as well as University policy.
