We promote and provide Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math opportunities to elementary and middle school children.
Your support and contributions will provide STEAM opportunities for the youth of Colleton County SC. Your generous donation will help us achieve our ultimate mid-term goal to fund and field a First Robotics Competition (FRC) level team. These are full-sized robots designed, built, programmed, and run by the students. They are awe-inspiring for the students, coaches, families, and college admission staff. Every little bit counts.
We started with FIRST LEGO League but our plan is to field Junior teams as well as Middle and High school teams. We are particularly smitten with the values instilled by FIRST.
At the beginning of this school year a bunch of students asked "Is it cold in space?" Rather than answering their question we enabled them to find out for themselves with an ultra high altitude weather balloon and sensor array.

There is so much we want to do and time is only one constraint so we must raise money. Thanks to some very generous sponsors, we hosted a Family Fun Night on "Star Wars Day" "May the Fourth be with You"
By 2022 we will field a High School level Robotics team that will attract the interest of the tech industry and college admissions staff.
The Team America Rocketry Challenge is an annual American model rocketry competition for students in grades seven to 12 sponsored by the Aerospace Industries Association and the National Association of Rocketry.
Donate to the cause and invest in the future of these Young Scientists.
This is a road map that leads straight to engineering. This is a rock to shatter a thousand glass ceilings, a rope to pull a generation up and out of poverty, a sledgehammer to break down cultural barriers, and a universal language spoken in every nation on Earth.
