Our "Why" : We believe that our future relies on a generation of critically thinking, STEM literate, global learners -- who have the problem solving skills to tackle issues on community, national, and global scales. The way to achieve that? Ensure that all learners can, and want to, access, explore, and use knowledge in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. We work to ensure families and communities can inspire their young people to explore knowledge; we work with educators to bring STEM exploration and experts into their classrooms; we work to use low-cost, or exigent, tinkerable technologies to increase access to STEM knowledge and ways to explore it; and we help all learners, of all ages, to explore knowledge themselves.
