K-12 STEAM Education




Problem Statement

We are inspiring K-12 students to pursue STEAM careers by providing hands-on lesson plans and access to resources.

Prospective Students

Students passionate about STEAM and education in underserved communities

Mission Statement

Our mission is to visit schools and introduce fun and interactive STEAM-related activities to students in K-12. We not only want to help create an interesting and engaging environment, but we also want to mentor the students so that they may consider pursuing higher education in the future in STEAM.

Quarter Goals

The goals of this quarter include going to at least two schools as well as establishing new relationships with more schools for future quarters. In addition, the team is striving to implement at least two new lesson plans while also recycling previous ideas. We are working with both new and old schools to strategize content around a new topic. We hope to introduce new STEAM topics such as computer science, climate change and sustainability while also empowering girls in STEAM!
