M-PowerHouse. M-Powering Young Minds. One Mind At A Time.


There is a national shortage of African American girls and Hispanics in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. M-PowerHouse of Greater Pittsburgh developed the Esteem STEAM all-female initiative to enlighten and encourage underrepresented girls from K thru 12 to pursue STEAM careers. The Esteem STEAM program addresses social factors and sparks inquisitiveness in STEAM through University, College, Healthcare Institutions, and Corporate Partnerships. A key factor is also mirroring emulating. This brings about a sense of pride to see professional women and others who challenge their critical-thinking process. M-PowerHouse recognizes hometown Sheroes and others who become that beacon of hope and turns dreams into reality and meet the future workforce needs of Allegheny County and surrounding areas.

As with retention, disparities in test scores start early, in kindergarten. Black students entering kindergarten for the first time score lower than their white counterparts in reading, mathematics, science, cognitive flexibility, and approaches to learning — every category tested. The gaps persist throughout schooling, at fourth, eighth, and 12th grades, according to a report from the Forum on Child and Family Statistics. On the SAT, black students had a mean score of 428 for critical reading and 428 for math, compared with mean scores for white students of 527 for critical reading and 536 for math.



Symptoms and Prevention

Symptoms of COVID-19 can include: fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

Symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure. Reported illnesses have ranged from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely ill and dying.

Human coronaviruses spread just like the flu or a cold:

Through the air by coughing or sneezing.
Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands.
Touching an object or surface with the virus on it.
Occasionally, fecal contamination.
Here’s how you can protect yourself:

Cover coughs or sneezes with your elbow. Do not use your hands!
Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
Clean surfaces frequently, including countertops, light switches, cell phones, remotes, and other frequently touched items.
Contain: if you are sick, stay home until you are feeling better.
