Our youth programs and events are carefully crafted to encourage STEM learning, break down gender myths, and offer career insight into STEM industries. All programs and events are led by an advisory committee, comprised of both industry and K-12 education professionals.

This program creates incredible opportunity for Rhode Island’s students while also supplying a steady stream of trained employees for our businesses.
