Who Are We?
We strive to provide underprivileged elementary and middle school children from inner-city and low-income neighborhoods in Los Angeles, after-school and summer, STEM and computer coding learning opportunities. We host inspiring talks from those who are working in high-tech industries such as SpaceX, Apple Computer, Google and academic institutions such as Caltech, USC, and UCLA regarding careers in STEM related fields. We realize these opportunities are very limited in inner-city schools, and summer enrichment are expensive and not affordable. All of our classes are at no cost. Our teachers are comprised of middle school and high school teachers and students. Fundraising has been and will be done to purchase necessary textbooks, manuals, computer equipment and software. We also seek hardware donation from local companies. We hope we can bring changes to those who need them most. We plan to host competitions to encourage students to perfect their skills, to become more innovative. We coach students for team competitions, participate in hackathons and other educational STEM events.
