Netflix: Behind the Streams
Workshop Recordings Now Live!
This series of free workshops introduces interesting careers in STEAM fields, as well as the educational pathways and resources to get there.
Spring 2022 Workshop series is complete! Workshop recordings in English are now available (see link below).
Star Tech Global Academy partnered with Netflix to bring the 4-part Behind the Streams: STEAM Discovery workshop series in-person and virtually to West Seattle, South Seattle, and Central Seattle. Over 60 students were exposed to careers in Media and Technology while inspired by diverse Netflix Volunteers to pursue a career in STEAM. The Behind the Streams project resulted in a resounding 100% of participants reporting increased interest in pursuing a career in STEAM and pairing with a mentor to help navigate and support their success. This workshop allowed for an enriched expansion of our STEAM community. There was a near-unanimous increase in their sense of identity as a STEAM member. An overwhelming majority of students expressed enhanced confidence in their ability to succeed in STEAM. Special thanks to Netflix, Seattle Parks & Recreation, and all the volunteers and attendees that made this possible!

How to Attend
Each workshop is FREE. Participants are welcome to attend virtually from home or in-person from the COVID-compliant community locations. The dates for each location are on the flyer.
To attend Virtually, we use the Zoom video-calling platform. No software download is needed, you can "join meeting from the browser" (e.g., Chrome, Safari, Edge, Firefox).
The Zoom link and instructions for each workshop will be posted on this website and on the home page. Just go to http://steamdiscoveryproject.org and the link will be there.
Free Pizza + Swag + How to Win $25
Each location will have free pizza. Signups help us plan to have enough food.
For each location, the first 10 participants to sign up and complete the workshop will win $25 Amazon gift cards. The gift cards will be emailed soon after the workshop completion.
For each location, all participants who complete the workshop will receive a swag pack (tote bag, buttons, magnets, stickers).
Please note that there is a very brief exit survey we will ask you to complete at the end of the workshop. The exit survey helps us learn how to improve the workshops, and that information is what helps keep this program free of charge.
We plan to record each workshop so that others can get the same awesome information. By participating in the workshop, you are agreeing to the recording of the workshop.
Recordings will be posted on our website and made available to the community locations so that other community members will have access.
If you have any questions concerns about this please feel free to contact us in advance. We want to co-create an inclusive and comfortable environment for all to participate.
