Didier Mponte, Chief Operating Officer of Square Root Academy, helps students brainstorm ideas during a class for SCOE Community Schools students.

The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) has partnered with the Square Root Academy to help young learners recognize potential career options in science, technology, engineering, and related fields. 

The Square Root Academy is a non-profit organization that uses “STEAM”-based programs (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) to help motivate students. Square Root instructors teach STEAM fundamentals while emphasizing collaborative learning, innovation, and academic excellence. 

SCOE Community Schools teachers had been searching for additional resources to help motivate students and expose them to possible career paths. They’ve found Square Root Academy to be a helpful partner.
