Mission

Our mission is to build passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in Philadelphia’s K-12 students by expanding partnerships among major research universities and their local K-12 education programs.

Our core goal is to embed community outreach excellence into America’s graduate department traditions, and pursue robust communication among these departments and local K-12 educators.

Our goal as STEM educators is to engage students in active learning techniques that will build critical thinking, experimental design techniques, and give students the opportunity to experience STEM sciences first hand with the oversight of a graduate student leader.

For too long our Nation’s greatest educational facilities have occupied neighborhoods where nearby public education systems consistently rank below the nation’s average. It is time for these institutions to step forward with an open hand to foster cultures that support and encourage higher education by connecting with community members and students alike with a common goal to teach, learn, and smile.
