We are people who love kids & technology.

For over a decade, we've created meaningful, messy, and memorable STEM experiences for kids across Wisconsin. We know that hands-on exploration is the best way to build a deep connection—and that kids who are confident and competent in STEM will fare best in the future.

The future is STEM...

From 2021 to 2031, STEM occupations are projected to grow 10.8%. That's much faster than the average for all occupations (5.3%).

The median income for those STEM jobs is more than double the median income for non-STEM jobs.

Women, Hispanic, and Black workers are consistently underrepresented in the STEM workforce and degree fields.

...and that's where we come in.

Our vision is a world where every kid discovers a love for STEM—and knows that they can pursue a future in it.           

Our mission is to shape future science & engineering professionals by connecting kids to STEM experiences that spark awareness, drive excitement, and cultivate passion.

First, we spark awareness in the community.

At local events and community centers, we show off what STEM can do using creative, culturally relevant activities.

Then, we get kids excited about STEM.

In summer camps, one-night-only weekend workshops, and more, we introduce a variety of topics and then give kids the time and tools they need to explore them fully.

We give kids a structure that supports their passion.

For those who want to dive even deeper into STEM, we support robotics teams. Kids on these teams build robots, of course, but they also learn how to give back to the community—and much more.

Our robotics teams are part of FIRST®, a global community.
