BS3 STEAM at USC
USC has partnered with Black College Success (BCS), a program of the LA Promise Fund, to increase student awareness of career pathways in the STEAM fields. The BCS team identified STEAM readiness as a gap within our continuum of supports and designed the Black Student STEAM Success Program (Black S³) to help give the students they serve a stronger STEAM foundation. USC Viterbi K-12 STEM Center’s expertise in science, math, and engineering is responsible for providing the curriculum.
"The most memorable moment was getting to have the college resources fair. As Black students we aren’t really given the access to things like that, so the exposure was greatly appreciated on my behalf."
“The most memorable moment was the STE(A)M expo because I learned a lot of new ways to earn internships and was exposed to scholarship opportunities that I was unaware of.”
“Going to Disneyland and building a car for science was pretty memorable and it was unique experiences as a Black student.”
