who we are

We are committed to helping high school students gain a better understanding of how Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) are used to solve “real world” problems through our High Tech U programs. We foster a renewed commitment to explore a future in the technology industry. Since 2001, our HTU program has reached some 8,000 students in 12 states and nine countries.

More recently, the Foundation began partnering with teachers to introduce them to our STEM-focused modules and activities. Through these programs, we have connected with over 1,200 teachers across the country.
