Ways to Give

Your gift of money or time can help change a child’s life and offer an opportunity for a brighter future.

According to the Department of Education, “research shows that early exposure to STEM has positive impacts across the entire spectrum of learning. For example, early math knowledge not only predicts later math success, it also predicts later reading achievement (National Research Council, 2012).” That’s good news. But it comes with a warning: too many children are not, in fact, being taught STEM at an early age.

Kids in Tech has proven, demonstrated results, with over 90 percent of our participants reporting increased knowledge, skills, and interest in STEM fields. We’re growing by leaps and bounds and, with your generous support, look forward to offering our programs in more communities across the region and around the country.

Volunteer

Club instructors are the cornerstone of Kids in Tech programming. Club volunteers spend once or twice a week for a semester in a community venue teaching Kids in Tech programming. They inspire students to continue the pursuit of technology and computer science skills.
