Happy Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month! AAPI Heritage observances started more than 40 years ago, when president Jimmy Carter formalized Public Law 95-419 and established a celebration of American citizens of Asian and Pacific Islander origin. Through the month of May, we will be highlighting the incredible contributions of AAPI innovators and engineers with a focus on STEM innovations and achievements.
To celebrate AAPI Heritage Month, we’ll be sharing lessons, activities and ideas including:
- Professional development resources for AAPI educators and administrators
- National Inventors Month content, featuring AAPI inventors
- & More!
Plus, check out these great resources for learning more about organizations working to promote AAPI excellence in STEM!
- Asian American Architects and Engineers Association
- National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering
- Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers
