Our mission is to positively influence K-12 youth toward their pursuit of Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) careers. We support innovative ideas that are project based, hands-on, and encourage student-led explorations. Grants typically range from $2,500 to $5,000.
There are many quality programs that we value and respect, but our objective is to fund and incubate fresh ideas that result in high quality, relevant, experiential learning. We do not fund textbooks, scholarships, salaries, travel, existing projects, Project Lead the Way, or FIRST Robotics teams.
Developing young engineers, scientists and mathematicians can be accomplished best when real problems are solved in real contexts using real equipment – our mantra is “we don’t buy textbooks, we buy gear!”
We accept inquiries year round and specialize in personalized attention and the co-creative process of project development.
