S.Y.STEM Coalition was founded by a young engineer who was volunteering at a local food bank. She interacted with a lot of young kids and realized that if she could spark the interest in STEM in just one child, it could lift an entire family out of poverty.
We started out as a six-person team in someone’s kitchen on Saturday mornings. Since our founding, we have grown to serve not just Tucson, AZ, but Pittsburgh, PA, and Los Angeles, CA as well. We are a geographically distributed organization, which allows us to tap into resources all across the country and even internationally.
We are a 501(c)3 who empowers youth in STEM through partnership with industry. Created and run by STEM professionals, S.Y.STEM Coalition makes science and engineering accessible and fun for kids.
