Detroit CHEMpreneurIST is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization that collaborates closely with local schools, educators, and community groups to offer unique workshops that blend personal care chemistry with entrepreneurial education. Our programs, designed to align with Michigan's ELA and Science standards, integrate a comprehensive STEEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Entrepreneurship, Art, and Math) approach. This initiative not only equips students with the skills to pursue their interests but also aims to enrich the STEEAM fields with diverse perspectives. By paving a way for minority-owned businesses, Detroit CHEMpreneurIST plays a pivotal role in strengthening our local economy and fostering innovation.

In our Personal Care Chemistry workshops, students embark on a creative journey to innovate and craft their own cosmetic products. Through a hands-on learning process, they'll develop hypotheses, experiment with different formulations, observe outcomes, and refine their creations based on their findings. This engaging approach encourages students to think critically and apply scientific methods to develop their unique cosmetic products.

Our Entrepreneurship workshops guide students through the exciting journey of launching a business, focusing on introducing innovative or enhanced products to the market. Participants will delve into their unique talents, uncovering how these can fuel a lasting business venture. Additionally, they'll broaden their 'toolkit' of skills and knowledge, setting a strong foundation to realize their personal aspirations.
