Our Mission

STEM Without Boundaries is a nonprofit organization committed to inspiring students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We do this through training high school students to host successful STEM nights in their community for elementary students by providing all the resources, mentorship, and funding. We also strive to make STEM resources accessible to everyone through our innovative programs and hands-on activities at these STEM nights.


We believe STEM equity and inclusion has the power to change our futures and the world
