The morning following Mile High United Way’s National Volunteer Week kit building event, we had the great pleasure of presenting their donated and assembled Science Fair Fun in a Box to the Foothills Elementary staff. As part of the donation, Science Fair Fun will support Foothills every step of the way to lay the foundation for an inclusive and skills-based Science & Engineering Fair.
We are so fortunate to have Mile High United Way’s support of our mission to address inequities in support, resources and access to enrichment opportunities in the context of Science & Engineering Fairs that fall along socioeconomic lines. These inequities exasperate the inequities and the lack of diversity found within the STEM workforce. Not only do our programs level the Science & Engineering Fair playing field, but they also help students develop their STEM skills in a powerful and innovative way that aligns with the Next Generation Science Standards, Science & Engineering Practices. We inspire and empower STEM-underrepresented students to develop their problem solving, creativity, communication and teamwork skills using the platform of Science Fairs.
