To impact the lives of underrepresented/underprivileged/minority children by igniting their passions for STEM. In a world where STEM is quickly becoming prevalent and necessary for both academic and professional endeavors, teaching students and providing them with a passion for STEM beyond their classroom knowledge is no longer an option but necessary. However, many communities, including refugee, economically disadvantaged, and underrepresented minority communities, do not have access to the resources to provide their children with education in STEM fields. We are committed to educating students in order to close the STEM opportunity gap.
CuriouSTEM journey began in the Summer of 2019 in order to provide underprivileged students equitable paths to success in science, math, and technology. We partnered with many Elementary schools in the Dallas Independent School District and the Richardson Independent School District to educate and help their students create science research projects. In 2020, we partnered with a refugee community with 40+ students and started a virtual Science Project initiative with volunteers around the country to guide students in 1-1 virtual workshops to help them research/experiment with their favorite science topics and create a project of their own.
