Bridging communities to impact STEM access and learning anywhere, anytime

We are an independent group of scientists from Brown University aiming to inspire and mentor middle school students from under-represented groups in STEM.
Via a collaboration with 100mentors, we are using technology as a means to
by-pass historical and structural barriers to STEM.

How it works

Brown x 100mentors collaboration makes it easy for mentees and mentors to connect through a digital platform thus making our impact measurable.


Educators & students set topics and ask questions asynchronously on the 100mentors app


Mentors & learners engage through the 100mentors’ bite-sized Q&A format to dig deeper into topics that matter


Mentors, learners & educators meet in person to explore, try experiments and discuss topics that sparked their interest

Check out what participants think of the Community STEM program and how it helped them with their personal development.
My experience with the program was simple and easy to navigate, once I got the hang of it, in how the system works. The kids enjoyed the interactions, and I too had fun being able to assess the students and see the reactions to the feedback, both from the instructors as well as the students
