We believe all students should have equitable access to high-quality STEM education and we recognize there are significant gaps in resources, policies and opportunities for many students across the United States. That’s why we’re especially committed to serving students furthest from opportunity.

“Even though only 2% of all physicians are black women, I grew up always having doctors that looked like me and I looked up to them. I want to be that role model for other little girls and let them know that they can be whatever they dream of.”

“I teach at a predominantly Latino school - my campus has the highest number of ESL or ELL population students. I feel like I grew exponentially in terms of how to deliver the content and how to close some of those gaps that a lot of my students have."
