As a STEAM teacher in a Title One public elementary school, I’m always proud and pleasantly surprised by the creative expression and analytical skills of the Black girls in the classroom. Many do not see the great potential Black girls have in the areas of STEAM Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics a growing national model.

During the project creation portion of my lessons girls seem to explode with creativity. On the down side Black girls exhibit self doubt and low self confidence when involved in science and math related skills. This self doubt and low self confidence should be addressed by parents and teachers to build up girls, to show them they can be successful in science and math. Teachers must strive to build Black girls confidence and positive self expression especially Black girls who are not often exposed to the dynamics of STEM or STEAM.
