Step Up

A program to ignite an interest for technology, innovation and science in youths

Young people have a natural curiosity for the world around them. We pair this inquisitiveness with exposure to new technology and methods to think creatively about innovation. Through group work and hands on learning, youths gain the confidence to explore the fields of technology and science independently. Learn more about our programs and get involved yourself.

Our curriculum is designed for youths ages 7 to 12.
