STEM Resources for Your Community

We’re on a mission to help inspire future innovators.

We believe all aspiring scientists, tech geniuses, engineers, and mathematicians should have the opportunity to pursue their dreams.

As part of our work to increase diversity in tech, we support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) educational initiatives, particularly in communities that may lack resources.

Below we've compiled a list of STEM-related resources and organizations. We encourage you to visit the ones that interest you, or share with someone you know.
