We are fulfilling our mission towards youth with our Saturday program called The STEM Foundation. The program is designed to create a foundation of interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.) in 3rd – 12th grade students. The program operates from October to April, averaging 42 kids weekly. Our core objective is to provide a dynamic and rigorous learning environment for the kids through online programming and exposure to STEM careers through weekly presentations from STEM professionals. The kids also experience STEM in action on monthly field trips provided by our industry partners.
We would love to have your presence and support at our Gala night of appreciation and recognition with the purchase of a table(s) or underwriting a portion of the Gala.
