Founded in 2020, our mission is to change the narrative on the lack of diversity in STEM related fields. We are equipping underserved young adults with the skills, information and opportunities that encourage their involvement and investment in STEM based career fields and hobbies that benefit their passions and help fuel their dreams.
Our target audience consists of students in the Greater Houston area attending schools in the Houston, Fort Bend, Cypress Fairbanks, Alief, Aldine, Klein, and Katy independent school districts.
As of 2020, we’ve worked with over 24 panelists and presenters with help from RI Studios, VMWare, HNTB, Patchr, Kids Robotics Academy, The Greater Houston Partnership, Impact Hub, and more.
