SCIENCE IN A SUITCASE partners with nonprofits around the world to spark children's passions for science, technology, and the arts, igniting unlimited possibilities for their futures. Our STEAM based programs engage kids with hands-on learning experiences that foster creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, and give them the confidence that they can succeed.
Impact StatementIn 2015, women in the US occupied only less than 26% of the STEM workforce. Globally, 28% of all R+D seats are attended by women. Today, African-American and Latinx workers represent 29 percent of the general workforce population (up from about 24 percent in 2001), however, 16 percent of the advanced manufacturing workforce, 15 percent of the computing workforce and 12 percent of the engineering workforce - all rates that have remained nearly flat between 2001 and 2015. Our goal is to alleviate this issue and strengthen our underserved friends
Needs StatementScience In A Suitcase needs new laptops to run the Lego Mindstorms and WeDo software packages, as the current laptops are becoming unusably old!
