I started the program in 2011 to fill an educational awareness gap for underrepresented students. Since our launch we have expanded into four states, Washington, Oregon, California and Texas. Our organization plans one day STEM Summits in partnership with colleges and universities, and year long programs in coding, design thinking, public speaking, GIS Mapping, technical writing and civic engagement.
