Our purpose is to engage students who are underrepresented in STEM fields, and motivate them to persist in these lucrative, high demand careers. We have two strategic approaches.

Provide engineering education through the MESA initiative, including resources, training, mentors and technical assistance to help create engineering and technology clubs after-school.

Create pilot programs, test for relevance and effectiveness, offer as specialized Saturday Academies and Summer camps, and ACT 48 Teacher Professional Development.

We’ve successfully incubated programs in bio-medical research, computer science, naval engines, bio-engineering, Navy logistics and music and technology.
