Education is the key to success so this week’s Street Beat focuses on organizations that help students return to school after dropping out or build interest in STEM programs. 

First, Syma Chowdhry learns about the Fusion Academy, a special program helping high school drop-outs change their lives, from Joi Mausi, student outreach coordinator, and Erica Freeman-Jones, Center Director of Fusion Academy West.

Then Community Correspondent Cindy Kainz hears about two military-based programs trying to increase interest science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields from Steve Gordon, NDIA-MI STEM Committee Member and Stacey Eeman, STEM Director for Women in Defense.  

Then Community Correspondent Rosalie Kakos gets the details on Wayne State University’s STEM program for young women called Go-Girl from Dr. Sally Roberts, the Director of the program.

Finally, Syma leans about the Morse Code Scholarship Program from Attorney Michael Morse and Chacona Johnson—the President and CEO of the Detroit Public Schools Foundation.
