The Power of Collaboration: 2023 Year in Review


STEM education has the power to energize students and strengthen communities–bringing together children, families, educators, and organizations to provide crucial learning experiences and scholarships for the students who need them most. As we reflect on 2023, the impact of STEM education has hit new milestones.

2023 marked the inaugural year of our partnership with ServeWyoming and AmeriCorps focusing on serving students, teachers, families, and communities to increase access to life-changing, hands-on STEM learning experiences. 

Your generous support made it possible to empower local communities.  We hope you will be inspired by our Year in Review.
