  • The Pyramid STEM Challenge calls for the community to spur the development of critical skills needed for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). These skills should be developed as early as possible, so our youth need your help. The challenge consists of three (3) components that we ask everyone to get involved in: provide role models, participate in Black Family Technology Awareness Week and test (challenge) you or your child’s skills – try a brainteaser competition or other test. DHEx offers several programs that meet these 3 components: a. Cyber Play Day – we host and encourage other sites to host a one day event which uses internet technology for educational fun, b. We give George Washington Carver Science Fair Awards, c. We hold a free Annual Pyramid STEM Showcase – full day of hands-on STEM-related exhibits, computer lab learning, with giveaways, resources and seminars, d. We hold Brainteaser competitions and e. We provide traveling African American History exhibits on STEM, Astronauts and Inventions
