Welcome, parents!

SECME is a pre-college science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) enrichment program that provides schools, after-school programs, and other children’s programs (for students kindergarten through 12th grade) with projects, workshops, campus visits, competitions, information and scholarships to interest and prepares them for college and careers in STEM.

SECME’s focus is on under-represented student populations – African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, low-income students, and girls. However, we are not exclusive. Your student can become involved in SECME through their school (which requires the principal’s permission and an adult club or group coordinator), scouting group, after-school program, boys & girls club, or other organized student groups with adult leadership. It costs nothing to register a student group with SECME.

As your child’s first teacher and coach, we believe you play an important role in your child’s academic success in general, as well as their choice of careers and interest in STEM. This page is designed to provide you with resources and information to enhance learning at home, introduce you and your child to resources and opportunities, and help you become a better partner with your schools.

We invite you to visit often and encourage your child’s school or club to partner with SECME!

  • SECME programs prepare your child both academically and socially for admission and success in college (particularly in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)
  • SECME encourages K-12 and university educators and parents to collaborate for the student’s success
  • SECME Member Universities are committed to assisting parents and students through the college readiness and admissions process
  • SECME is designed to educate parents to become their children’s best advocates for academic achievement, college access, and career success.
