Paving the Way for the Next Generation of STEM Trailblazers
Project Exploration (PE) has worked tirelessly for 23 years to change the face of STEM by dismantling the barriers that prevent underrepresented students from experiencing the wonder and discovery in STEM. STEM education is an imperative social justice issue, and our mission is to right this injustice.
As the pandemic turned our world upside down, PE was completing a two-year study, systematically assessing the perspectives of students, parents, educators, and other community stakeholders regarding the impediments and challenges that kids experience in engaging in STEM education. From those conversations, three community-defined barriers and subsequent priorities emerged, which have laid the foundation for an ambitious 10 year vision and PE’s next decade of impact.
We are endlessly grateful for the trust of parents and students who participate in PE’s free, high-quality STEM programs and for the generous support of partners and donors who make this work possible. We are paving the way so the next generation of STEM trailblazers may reach their full potential, but as we embark on our most ambitious vision yet, this support is more vital than ever.
We challenge you to learn more about our 10-year plan

Project Exploration creates transformative learning experiences, pathways, and a community for youth underrepresented in STEM, especially low-income students, students of color and young women, allowing them to explore STEM careers and equip them with the necessary skills, practices, and mindset needed for lifelong learning.
