Fall Reconnect!
"I am a Jewel and I designed a..." 
Our fall programs were a great success! The girls had the opportunity to program a robot with software engineers and learn from an architect about the basics of design using Google's Sketch-up. Our cost to provide programming is $65 per student per workshop and we ask families of participants to contribute $10/student per workshop. We are committed to providing affordable STEM programming.  Please consider helping close the operational expense gap with your personal support.  Thank you to all of the sponsors and industry experts that contributed to making these workshops extremely beneficial for the girls. 
"I am a Jewel and I programmed a robot!"
"I am a Jewel and I designed a car!"


Our very own Executive Directive, Kimberly Wayne, won the Diversity Championship Award at the Iowa's 'Most Extraordinary' Women of Innovation Award Ceremony on November 10th. These awards are given to professionals and students in the STEM related fields and is considered the most prestigious honor for women in technology in Iowa. This is a wonderful honor for Jewels Academy, helping us to continue to inspire young ladies every day. Congratulations!   
We would like to thank our major sponsors, Cognizant's Making the Future, Wells Fargo, Jack and Jill Foundation and Polk County's MYFI.
