Provide hands-on learning to underserved students



Help us engage underserved students in exploring and learning science, engineering, and math concepts through The Tech Challenge.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Underserved students are often underrepresented in math and science and are not given the opportunity to participate in after-school programs. The Tech Museum believes every young person should have an opportunity to explore hands-on design. The Tech Challenge, one of The Tech Museum's signature programs, is our way of "inspiring the innovator in everyone."

How will this project solve this problem?

The Tech Challenge provides months of team learning in science, engineering, and math. The Tech Challenge meets California Content Standards and reinforces skills of creativity, problem solving, design, teamwork, leadership, presentation, risk-taking, perseverance, and learning from failure. Each year a new Challenge is designed to allow students to creatively solve a real-world problem. We will reach out to and provide underserved youth the opportunity to participate in The Tech Challenge

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will provide an opportunity for 10 teams of under-served students to participate in The Tech Challenge. These students will have access to a program that reinforces the scientific process, inspires creativity, and builds teamwork skills.
