Young Emerging Scientists Seal of Approval!

Our Young Emerging Scientists (Y.E.S.) program was the recipient of the Governor's STEM Advisory Council's Seal of Approval! This recognition positions us well for future plans as we grow in programming and impact.


We are very grateful to the West Des Moines Chamber of Commerce for choosing Jewels Academy for their "Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion" fundraiser! Along with Jewels Academy, proceeds from it will also go to the NAACP.  Click the picture for the WDM Chamber's 2020 video in the review.
