Join us as we celebrate an amazing year of STEM success! STEM for Success is a party with a purpose as all funds donated will support STEM Saturday and its fiscal sponsor Decision Education Foundation.

STEM Saturday offers FREE STEM education and enrichment opportunities for middle and high school students in underserved communities. On November 11, 2017, STEM Saturday and Decision Education Foundation (DEF) will host an amazing brunch to celebrate a full year of STEM programming and to honor some amazing advocates in STEM.

Why STEM for Success? It may come as a surprise, but even in the heart of Silicon Valley, there is an acute shortage of free or low-cost ongoing Science,Technology, Engineering, and Math related educational opportunities for middle school students in underserved communities. Which is tragic, considering the fact that we have soooo many resources here. STEM Saturday mission is to contribute to the STEM education community with three main objectives: (1) to provide our students with early exposure to STEM concepts in a fun and engaging way; (2) to create a supportive community of parents, educators, STEM role models, volunteers and corporate social responsibility partners and (3) to make it easier for STEM enthusiasts to use their skills and talents to help close the STEM diversity gap right here at home. DEF was founded by decision-making professionals with a mission to “improve the lives of young people by empowering them with effective decision skills. It is our wholistic approach will equipe our students with the technical skills and intrinsic motivation to create the next generation of STEM innovators.
