Joseph Adamji

Science Museum of Minnesota, Kitty Andersen Youth Science Center
A mixed kid from Chicago with cultural roots in Africa, Ireland, India and Poland, Joseph Adamji grew up a “bridge builder” of sorts. He serves as the Director for the Kitty Andersen Youth Science Center (KAYSC) at the Science Museum of Minnesota creating bridges between families, community efforts/organizations, educators, institutions and opportunity. They are working to build a cross-sector “STEM Justice Ecosystem” that will bring inclusion and the experiences of women, youth of color, and youth from low income communities to the center of conversations on workforce development, career pathways, education, and leadership in the 21st century. Adamji leads an amazing team of STEM Justice Practitioners who combine STEM learning with workforce development, youth leadership development and civic engagement, to empower youth ages 6-25 to change our world through science. They are building a movement to redefine STEM as a tool for addressing systems of oppression, for the field and for youth. Adamji believes in the power of young people, and in the power of the collective to support them, as they discover their brilliance, find their purpose, and lead us into the future. He looks forward to all the connections we will make to align our diverse needs, visions, skills, and actions for a healthy, equitable, and sustainable future.
