STEM+C : Science, Technology, Engineering, Math + Creativity

STEM+C Inc. is a 501c3 not for profit.

STEM+C creates bold, innovative challenges to capture our nation’s

younger generation’s attention and spirit.

We engage students as young as 5th grade through University with our projects, programs, and challenges in Aerospace, Aeronautics, and Aviation. These projects are our attempt to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. Our goal is to get students excited about those career fields. Our aerospace projects are not unlike any aerospace project that any aerospace company would try to attempt. The missions can be accomplished, but it will take planning, experimentation, discovery, engineering, design, build, and construction. There is no guarantee of success. Through all of our planning and testing, we plan for the best. 

We believe this aspect of education got lost somewhere in the history of education. Our education system has evolved into teaching students how to pass tests. Our education system has gotten bogged down in teaching the students “What to think”, not “How to think”. We as a nation, have managed to uninspire the next generation. We as a nation no longer set bold innovative goals.  

This is our attempt to change that. These projects teach the students how these types of projects are conducted in real life. The students learn through the actual process of success and failure. The students learn through creative innovation when building their aerospace vehicles. The launch day is not unlike any Space X or NASA launch, all of our planning, experimenting, checking and double checking comes down to the final second of the countdown clock. 

That is real life problem solving.

To help support our projects and programs and to help us expand, please consider a tax deductible donation.  Thank you, we sincerely appreciate your support.
