5kb

We are a 100% Volunteer organization - no one takes a salary! Unlike for Profit versions of these camps, we're solely in it to set the right foundation for the future of our world.

Each of our classes establish a balance between healthy lifestyle foundations and logical thinking patterns - Sports and Health meets STEAM. Our camps and programs seek to connect engineering and technological projects to real world activities. You don't have to choose between science / computer camp and sports / adventure camp. Let your child experience both in an interconnected, practically applicable experience.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED


It's common knowledge that there is a wide gap of expertise in major STEAM jobs for women, minorities, and low income backgrounds. We firmly believe that there is no short term fix to this. Instead our approach begins at the most fundamental stages with hands on knowledge development and continues throughout real world practical application of the concepts learned. To be successful, we need your help to raise funds so that any child, regardless of sex, race, or income level can have an equal chance at finding success in an innovative STEAM industry - code development, product innovation, engineering, etc.




We're here to help make a difference, and that ends with us getting you (or your children) into one of our live sessions. You won't experience learning like this anywhere else!

Big or small, our promise to you is that your donation will be used to help provide a foundation for a brighter future! Help us make the difference for so many inquisitive minds :-)!
