Disproportionate high school dropout rates, low graduation rates, limited exposure and access to science and math curricula results in African-American students having limited science and math literacy.
The PUSH Excel STEAM curriculum is provided in partnership with local technology partners who engage students in a number of technical areas including: introduction to HTML, creating web pages, app design, coding, and creating video games.
Students are expected to develop and achieve the following outcomes:

- Digital Portfolio
- Cascading Style Sheets
- Game Development

During the Summer STEAM Institute, students are engaged in project based learning opportunities. Each student will be asked to form a model tech company and select one of the following projects to complete for his/her company:
- Web Page Design
- Social Media Ethics
- Mobile Applications
These projects enable the students to understand how digital tools are utilized in the business world.
