What We Do
Through our math, coding, and robotics programs we cultivate curiosity, build community, and instill the skills and confidence to succeed in college-bound paths and beyond. By partnering with universities, institutions, corporate sponsors, and volunteers, these programs bridge the digital divides, achievement gaps, and diversity gaps that are so apparent in STEM education and inspire underserved youth.
How You Can Help
When universities, institutions, corporate sponsors, and volunteers partner with Bridges to Science, they invest in underserved youth in grades 5 through 9. Together we increase access to innovative STEM programs at Title 1 schools, homeschool groups, and like-minded organizations.
"We must find more ways to support more young people in developing as curious, caring, creative human beings, so that they can create waves of kindness that are needed to bring about lasting change in the future."
- Mitch Resnick
