We're on a mission to

Educate & Empower.

We're working to enable students in learning science, technology, engineering, and mathematics outside of the traditional classroom.


Our Mission

It's our goal to enable students outside of the classroom with the materials and resources they need to learn the fundamentals of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

We're dedicated to offering equal opportunity to students of all backgrounds in order create a brighter, smarter future.

Our Programs

Each year we host numerous summer and fall programs that introduce students to a variety of STEM topics. Programs range from day long hackathons to week long summer camps.

CS Upstart - Summer Camp

CS Upstart summer camps are week long day camps that provide a primer for students interests in STEM and computer science. Students work in groups to complete challenges such as building a website, creating an electromagnent, and constructing an AI enabled robot.

cs upstart - hackathon

CS Upstart hackathons are 24 hour events that encourage and excite students interests in programming and hardware. Students are guided by industry professionals to design and execute an idea of their choice.
