STEM is at the center of the American economy. Yet few children get the chance to see how STEM contributes to the success of a company, or understand the many job opportunities that exist in STEM fields.
Mentors help bridge the gap. They serve as role models, offer encouragement, and answer student questions about education and career choices. Mentors help students imagine themselves in STEM.
Your personal involvement or your support for employees who are interested in mentoring can make a difference. And individuals can decide how much time they are able to invest. Fill out our volunteer form by clicking here and we'll get in touch!
Field trips are another way to inspire students by letting them see STEM in action. Hosting a field trip in which students can see robots being designed or operated can broaden the children’s horizons, and help them understand how what they are learning translates into use. Can you or your company host a visit?
Help Us Empower
Our in-school and afterschool programs introduce children to programming and design, while supporting 21st century skills including teamwork and critical thinking. Keeping these programs in operation requires a steady stream of volunteers and funding.
Volunteers are needed to judge our end-of-year competition. The teams build and program robots to compete each May against teams from other schools. They look forward to the excitement of the competition and the encouragement of the adults who show up to cheer them. Fill out our volunteer form by clicking here and we'll get in touch!
Financial support from corporations, foundations, and individuals enable us to expand access to STEM learning. Because we leverage existing resources and operate with a very lean organization, your contribution of any amount will be well spent. Please contact us about sponsorship or donate on-line.
