How STEMFX Works

  1. Twice a year in September and February, WebFX launches 15 STEMFX learning paths which all students at Harrisburg High, Harrisburg High School SciTech Campus, and Steelton-Highspire High are eligible to apply for on a first-come, first serve basis.
  2. The first 15 students accepted into the program will receive eight industry-related learning paths to choose from to complete. The learning paths range from Web Developer boot camps to Social Media Marketing courses.
  3. The accepted students have 5 months to work through the courses assigned to their learning path, making them eligible for one of 15 $500 grants following completion.
  4. Grants are mailed to the recipients following course completion during the allotted time frame and can be used for purchasing a computer, phone, tech device, or continued education opportunity.

With the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasted 8% growth in STEM careers between 2019 and 2029, compared to an anticipated 3.4% increase in non-STEM occupations, WebFX wants to pave the way for underrepresented students in our local community.
