An El Paso nonprofit that works to improve the college readiness of students in the El Paso area has pledged $100,000 to expand opportunities for youth in STEAM fields – science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.

The Council on Regional Economic Expansion and Educational Development, better known as CREEED, presented the check to the Success Through Technology Education Foundation on April 5 during the STEAMX 10th anniversary event.

“We are thrilled to accept this generous contribution from CREEED, which will help thousands of students in El Paso prepare for advanced learning opportunities in STEAM subjects,” said STTE Foundation Executive Director Joseph Sapien.

The gift will support the foundation’s capital campaign, summer camps and programs, including STEAMX – a two-day event that provides middle and high school students the opportunity to participate in real-world STEAM-based competitions.
