Program open to the Greater Bay Area

Each fall, we provide FREE STEM classroom supplies and project-based STEM program/event grants to Greater Bay Area (CA) educators. Each spring, we work with educators to bring project-based science experiences directly to their classrooms.

Our fall 2021 and spring 2022 applications will be limited to educators in the Greater Bay Area (California) in line with our organization’s new vision and mission.
