We encourage critical thinking and emphasize the learning process include collaboration, risk taking and fails, rewarding our geniuses when their best efforts propel them to persevere!

What makes The JEKL Institute unique?

  • Everyone is a collaborator

    Many STEM-focused nonprofits exist within Colorado, nationally, and internationally. While these organizations may be perceived as competitors, The JEKL Institute views these organizations as potential collaborators.

  • We focus on all STEAM disciplines

    Other nonprofit organizations providing STEAM programs often focus on one or two specific skill sets.

  • Our programming is customizable

    Our curricula draw connections between STEAM and everyday activities to allow students to build connections, confidence and understanding before they fully commit to a specific career path.

  • We are culturally representative

    Our programming unapologetically highlights the achievements of women and BIPOC innovators in STEAM, which sets our programming apart and allows participants to see themselves as future STEAM professionals.

  • We never assume that participants have common resources

    The JEKL Institute provides the resources needed in order for every student to actively participate in our STEAM programming regardless of their situation or background.

What services do we provide? Programming and Workshops

The JEKL Institute’s programming includes a series of customizable STEAM activities that empower
educators and advocates to inspire BIPOC scholars to explore and pursue STEAM career paths.

The JEKL Institute’s programming consists of interactive maker activities that integrate concepts
across the STEAM disciplines to further engage curious minds – i.e., future doctors, engineers, and
technologists – as well as make the connection for those whose interests are in fields not
immediately identified in STEAM.

Throughout our history, more than 20,000 youth have participated in our activities in three countries and on two continents.
