Helps increase the number of underrepresented minority girls across the nation who pursue a future in STEM through her organization STEM from Dance.
STEM can make your wildest dreams come to life! Yamilée Toussaint Beach knows this first hand as she used her knowledge in mechanical engineering, dance, and passion for teaching students to create her non-profit: STEM From Dance. As a Dance Technologist and the founder Yamilée wants to get girls interested in STEM and uses dance performances that incorporate technology to do just that. During her time as a high school algebra teacher she realized kids were missing out on opportunities. Now she shows girls how to make light up sneakers and create a dance routine around them or a project where they design their own projection through computer programming. She's showing that STEM is creative!More About Yamilée
