Niesha Butler has returned to her roots to teach the next generation of children to “Go Pro.” The New York native opened the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) Champs Center for children to thrive in their career paths on Saturday, July 16, 2022. Now, the ballplayer turned software engineer hopes to remind the learning community success is possible in sports and beyond. “We’re excited to bring quality S.T.E.M. curriculum to the Brooklyn and Greater New York City kids. As a kid growing up in this same neighborhood, we were always encouraged to play sports, and through S.T.E.A.M. Champs and the S.T.E.A.M. Champs Foundation, we are encouraging kids to know both and excel in both areas of life,” Butler said in a statement to AfroTech.
