We believe in a world where every child can become a scientist.
Our mission is to invest in early childhood education in order to empower the next generation of scientists. We fulfill our mission by offering after-school science programs free-of-charge to elementary schools that serve historically underrepresented groups (HUGs) in STEM surrounding the CU Anschutz medical campus.
We rely on small grants and donors like you to fund this program; all of our ‘staff’ are volunteer scientists from the CU Anschutz medical campus.
