Create Impactful STEAM Programming

We believe STEAM education is for everyone. Help us inspire lifelong engagement and ethical leadership in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) for students from across West Virginia and the globe. We work hard to provide quality programming by building communities among students, teachers, and professionals. Our programs complement, broaden, and enhance the traditional school curriculum leading to careers in STEAM.

We Welcome Everyone

We build communities. It is at the core of our programming and mission as an organization. The National Youth Science Academy strives to provide opportunities for people of all backgrounds, both in our programming and in our staff. Our staff help to foster community in daily life, and we aim to create a welcoming environment for everyone. Thus, underrepresented groups, such as women and BIPOC, are encouraged to apply. 

Reasonable Accommodation

We value diversity and are an equal opportunity employer. We will take affirmative action measures to ensure against discrimination in employment, recruitment, advertisements for employment, compensation, termination, upgrading, promotions, and other conditions of employment against any employee or job applicant on the bases of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. We are committed to providing reasonable accommodations in our job application and recruitment process. If you need assistance or accommodation, please contact us at
